Interesting approach. Let's see where it gets.

Michael is probably right, that moving huge amounts of data to the browsers JavaScript interpreter can be a problem. OTOH, letting the browser do the work scales nicely with the number of users, as the server does only have to provide more data, but not do more rendering work. Also, some interactive actions, like switching the visibility or colour of plot lines is sth. browsers can do nicely without any interaction with the server.

That's why we think about re-implementing parts of our matplotlib rendering in JavaScript, e.g. using D3 (, except for printing.
