The technology has been around for awhile...
See -> http://jeanricardbroek-architect.blogspot.com/2009/03/more-explorations-into-html-on-prim.html

The blog post showed Awesomium, an up-and-coming library that allows developers to easily embed web-content in their applications. You can find out more information at: http://princeofcode.com/awesomium.php

The demo was made with Awesomium v1.0, Ogre3D, and OIS. The history behind this code is interesting since the technology, and early libraries were developed by someone from Linden Lab at least 2 years ago.

We also reported on Solipis and showed their video from early 2008 demonstrating the same functionality:

It has also been reported that the realXtend team has tested this code and may include it in their Next Viewer.

Thank you for the kind words. We are also really excited about Sirikata and actively looking for developers with strong C++ skills to help out with building this new open source platform.

To give your readers a sense I threw together this little video demo:

Huge props for this work belongs to our developer Adam for pulling this of. His site is at http://www.princeofcode.com/ and there you can find all the code for this. It is open source and in a separate library so other systems can benefit from his great work as well.

Ps. JeanRicard (the poster above) is right that this work was started a while back and has been public in earlier iterations.
