Did you click the link to this page?

https://blog.mozilla.org/luke/2013/03/21/asm-js-in-firefox-nightly/

You'll need Firefox 22 so, currently, a Nightly build from http://nightly.mozilla.org/

Once you've got that, you can either try one of their benchmarks:

http://kripken.github.com/misc-js-benchmarks/banana/benchmark.html

http://kripken.github.com/ammo.js/examples/new/ammo.html

(Note: BananaBench runs with a fixed time step to make JS execution deterministic, so game speed will run fast/slow, depending on your hardware/browser.)


...or you can download emscripten and compile something of your own:

https://github.com/kripken/emscripten/wiki/Tutorial

(Make sure you read the instructions on enabling asm.js mode in the optimization section of the emscripten tutorial)

James Long has also whipped up a fork of LLJS that'll compile to asm.js as he explains here:

If I'm not mistaken, that links off to bananabread - which as far as I can tell uses its own engine. But I can't find anywhere that allows users to try the Unreal engine in-browser

Oh, sorry. I thought you were asking about trying asm.js.
