The original one ran in Internet Explorer. I think the bits are still
included in emu/Nt, but
I'd be surprised it if still worked. It was a response to the contemporary
"browser as operating system" discussion.
We concluded that if the browser were to provide an operating system, it
might as well be a reasonable one
instead of the cruft on offer at the time, and still. Chris Locke quickly
did the work.
A similar project for Netscape ran into various problems with the Netscape
interface of the time,
and was abandoned, since the whole thing was initially just a bit of fun.
