It works fine with chromium here, though it is slower than with firefox.

I disabled all dependencies. I am glad we kept GP free of hard dependencies.

Take the official gp2c 0.0.9pl5 tarball, apply the patch d88e5e5 from
git and do

emconfigure ./configure
cp desc/func27.dsc src/func.dsc
cd src
make 'AM_CFLAGS=-DFUNCDSC_PATH=\"func.dsc\"'
emcc --embed-file func.dsc  -o gp2c.html *.o

(this embed the func.dsc file inside the js)

Then you get
(enter your gp code in the window, then do OK+Cancel+Cancel)

Of course the user interface needs to be written.
