    When I clicked your link, it told me: "It looks like you don't have Java installed. Please install java at Java.com". So it's probably Java that would need to access the GPU, not Javascript. Jun 22, 2012 at 4:03

You should have a look at this question about web miners.

In general, web miners use JavaScript and WebCL in order to perform operations on the GPU.

However, it might not be as profitable as you think. Considering that most people have very poor GPUs. At the moment if you'd have someone with a decent 200MHash/s card on your website for 24h, you'd basically earn 3 cents. You can check how much you could earn by visiting my calculator. All in all, you're better with ads.
