In September 2009 WebGL was announced. WebGL allows OpenGL in your browser via java. So, except having java available, no other plugins are necessary.

I don't know the exact state of WebGL, but it sounds promising because it should provide OpenGL posibilities on a large range of platforms (basically: every platform that has a browser with java as far as I know).

You can also use Java Applets together with LWJGL to run OpenGL in the browser. It works rather nicely, especially with Java 6u10 and later, but your client must have a Java browser plugin installed (but that's also true for Flash, Unity, Silverlight, etc). It works on Windows, Linux, Mac, and potentially on Solaris.

It's not particularly hard, although some knowledge of Java is of course needed. LWJGL has some example applet code that you can look at. The advantage is that you don't need the latest Firefox beta to run it.
