Not having coded a stitch of this, I *think* it would require the following:

- Web page on netperf-xxx.bufferbloat.net that served out the javascript (required to get around cross-domain protections within the browser)

- Javascript function to connect back to that host on port 12865 and fake out the netserver with TCP_STREAM or TCP_MAERTS request

- Javascript that's efficient enough to source/swallow full-rate data stream

- Cloning the code from https://github.com/apenwarr/blip to make fake pings from TCP requests

Anyone know more than I do about this?
