Epic Citadel engine ported to Javascript, HTML 5, runs in Firefox

Unreal Engine 3 has been ported to run inside a browser using HTML 5 and Javascript. The demo application using the game engine, Epic Citadel, will run within the browser without plugins, but it is recommended by Mozilla that the latest build of Firefox is used as it "heavily depends on the quality of the WebGL implementation, memory management and JavaScript engine" of the browser, which in some cases is not usable by the demo.
