Latest stable version of BananaBread. On Chromium, on both computers, I can't start any demo because I get a sad face tab while downloading. On Firefox, I get an error about missing WebGL on my netbook -- I haven't tried on my desktop, though.

This is my desktop:
OS: Xubuntu 12.10
CPU: Intel i7-2600K
RAM: 12GB
GPU: NVIDIA 570GTX, with 304.51 NVIDIA driver

And my netbook:
OS: Xubuntu 12.10
CPU: Intel Atom N455
RAM: 1GB
GPU: Intel HD 3000 with latest (probably) Intel driver

Do other WebGL demos work? http://get.webgl.org/

I'm on my desktop right now; it works in both Chromium and Firefox.
BananaBread works on my desktop on Firefox, although it is quite slow (about 30FPS on level 1 with high resolution).

Try lower resolution, on some GPUs the high resolution is too demanding.

It's still fairly slow (about 50-70 FPS). On Sauerbraten, on large maps with 1920x1080 resolution I can reach 300+FPS. But I guess about 60FPS is good for JavaScript.

I think it is bottlenecked by the CPU, because using /screenres 1920 1080 (set resolution) doesn't really change the game performance. Disabling glare, soft particles, etc... doesn't really change anything either. Antialiasing seems to be forced by Firefox (NVIDIA driver is set to "Use application settings", /fsaa var is set to 0).

You can't get more than 60fps in a browser, they limit the frame rate to that on purpose (in order to coordinate drawing with other parts of the browser and so forth). So it might be capable of more than 60fps, no easy way to tell.
