Not quite what you are thinking of (viewing it in a web browser) but if you 
were running UI-View and installed the add-on "FindU Log Converter" it could 
grab a log file from findu.com and save it on your HD. You can then play it 
back in UI-View. If you have either of the add-ons UI-Route  or 
UI-HeightTrack, it would draw the track on the screen when you played back 
the log. You could of course also have it draw a track in real time for a 
station heard via RF or from data received from an APRS server.
