Broadway is a GDK implementation that draws to a HTML5 canvas.  From
what I understand, the backend creates a little web service that when
you browse to it in a compatible browser, displays the contents of the
app's GDK windows in the browser window.

GDK is a drawing, windowing, and event abstraction that is ported to
backends such as X11 (xcb to be specific I think), Win32, Quartz on OS
X, HTML5, and soon Wayland.  GTK apps run on top of this.
