OCRAD.js: Pure Javascript OCR via Emscripten – Blog
The idea of the extension was kind of simple and also kind of magical: a browser extension that allowed users to highlight, copy, and paste text from any image as if it were plain text.

John Resig - OCR and Neural Nets in JavaScript
"A pretty amazing piece of JavaScript dropped yesterday and it's going to take a little bit to digest it all. It's a GreaseMonkey script, written by 'Shaun Friedle', that automatically solves captchas provided by the site Megaupload. There's a demo online if you wish to give it a spin."

Photographed page by page, those who think its contents might resemble Google Book Search would be dreadfully wrongWe thoroughly enjoy that his hands are in each shot. That's what the fancy Kindle has been missing all this time!"
