  Yeah, I've seen people talk about using emscripten to port Tor to
<whatever>, but I've yet to see someone present their finished code.  That
makes me suspect that it's not especially easy/do-able.  The process seems
very straightforward for video games, but Tor is a very complex set of
programs that have to work together ~just so~ in order to preserve privacy.

  And as much as I like javascript, I would be hesitant to use a security
program that was automagically turned into javascript.  This would still
require heavy testing and likely heavy development before it was ready to
be used by the general public.
