Hi Ikem,

I believe you are looking for Seaside.  Seaside supports Ajax.  Have a look
at www.seaside.st .  You get all the JavaScript you want plus more!  

Hmm, I was just reading your email more carefully.  So to be clear this
would give you the ability to use an external browser to access a Squeak
Server running Seaside.  That browser can then access squeak, render
widgets, windows, google maps...  

You can "embed" an external browser into squeak by using a RFB window
running in Squeak, but this only gives you VNC like capabilities (which
means you need to have a browser running on a server for each connection).  

There is also Dan's work which allows you to run squeak in JavaScript:

but again this may be opposite of what you are asking.  If indeed you need
to control Google maps on a widget in Squeak you might have to write the
conversation yourself.  

Oh and I found this, but I've never used it so your mileage may vary.

Happy Coding!
