In java, I can make an applet that allows other users to play my games using a web browser. Is there a way I can do this, or something similar to this, with an OpenGL program using C++?

You could make an ActiveX control to be used on a webpage.
Though some users might not want to install it (unsafe etc.).

Boooo! Down with ActiveX!

You can't run a program generated with C++ in a web browser, however you definately launch it, but you need to have the user automatically download the executable and all necessary files to a temp directory, but you most likely don't want them seeing this. You could make a java applet that does this and link them to a page that has the applet. The applet then transfers the files and executes it.

Another thing is you could use java. And use OpenGL through JoGL. Not sure if you can do that in an applet but you could use JavaWebStart to launch a java program.
