Good Javascript chess programs?

A new work project has required me to learn to program in a number of computer languages that up until recently I had avoided. One benefit of this extra work is that I may get into programming Google Apps or Opera Widgets, when I regain a little free time.
For now I've been looking at what others have been doing, including a coupe of chess progams that run as widgets in the Opera browser. Sadly the ones I've seen are pretty poor although that may be a function of the fact that they are written in Javascript. So my basic question is: Can you write a strong (ie 2000+ rated) chess program in Javascript? Or has someone already done it?
