Yes, I've seen that wxWidgets has Java bindings as well.

I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand, I detest browser-based
apps myself, as you get none of the advantages of a window manager and
all of the disadvantages of browser quirks. I've also not seen any
browser-based apps which can handle 3D smoothly. However, I can see the
appeal for people, so having something like that as one possible frontend
might be something we want to look into. I just don't want it to be the
only frontend.
