If Java or Python would JIT into JS, thereby reusing the JS JIT, then they could be very fast in the browser too.
May be Python, but most definitely not Java. Java programs are often slower but that because Java libraries have so many useless levels of indirection, but Java JITs are much faster then JS ones. Translation to JS JIT can not fix broken libraries design.
