I have compiled Gambit with a recent version of emscripten and this improves performance quite a bit.  Running Gambit in the Firefox browser is about 17x slower than when run natively (compiled with gcc).  You can try it out here:

Please find attached the script that was used to compile Gambit-in-the-browser.  It automates the downloading of emscripten and Gambit, and builds the interpreter to get gsi.js .  Let me know if you need more info.
