theweatherelectric (2007596) writes "With the release of Emscripten 1.0, Mozilla's Alon Zakai has put together a demo which renders PDF documents in JavaScript. He writes, 'I released Emscripten 1.0 over the weekend, which came with a demo of rendering PDFs entirely in JavaScript (warning: >12MB will be downloaded for that page). Emscripten is an LLVM-to-JavaScript compiler which allows running code written in C or C++ on the web. In the linked demo, Poppler and FreeType were compiled to JavaScript from C++.'"
