Submission + - Google Gets Quake II Running In HTML5 (blogspot.com)

Dr Herbert West writes: A trio of Google engineers have ported id Software's gib-filled first-person shooter Quake II to browsers— you know, for kicks—as a way to show just what HTML5 compatible web browsers are capable of.
According to the developers, "We started with the existing Jake2 Java port of the Quake II engine, then used the Google Web Toolkit (along with WebGL, WebSockets, and a lot of refactoring) to cross-compile it into Javascript. "
Here's a link to the developer blog if you don't feel like heading over to Kotaku.
