A JavaScript version of the ROOT I/O subsystem is being developed, to browse (inspect) ROOT files in a platform independent way. This allows the content of ROOT files to be displayed in most web browsers, without having to install ROOT, hence giving a direct access to ROOT files from new (e.g. portable) devices in a light way. This presentation will show how to browse ROOT files and display simple graphical objects such as histograms and graphs, using an external JavaScript library with a rendering being being very close to the original ROOT graphics.
