Grail is a web browser written in python. You can find it on the
python web site, maybe in the Vaults of Parnassus, and I think it is
actually located on sourceforge (try http://grail.sourceforge.net).
I don't think it is being actively maintained anymore though. Since
Grail is written in python, it was made with the ability to run python
applets. I don't know if they would need to be put in a zip file or
what for the browser to get them.
I think that using jython is the best solution for you since (almost)
everybody has a web browser that can run java applets.
