Hi,

I like working with JavaScript to build user interfaces, and I was wondering if/how I could use a web browser to communicate with an Arduino project.

Thanks for the discussion!

hmm.. maybe node is an option: https://github.com/voodootikigod/node-serialport
and could be combined with webkit

that should work, although to require node-serialport, it might need some work to build an app with the gyp bindings.

Web browsers are shielded from serial ports so you can't, not with some custom plug-ins that breach the security. But if you run a web server on arduino, yes, you can have a web interface. I was looking for web browsers that will fetch web pages from serial ports a while back and found nothing worth trying.
