This paper describes a Reconfigurable Hybrid Architecture for the developing, distribution and execution of web applications with high computational requirements. The Architecture is a layered model based on a hybrid device (standard microprocessor and FPGA), for which has been designed and implemented a component as a web browser plug-in. Web applications are divided into two parts: an standard part and a reconfigurable part. The plug-in links the software and hardware applications, implementing an API for the management and access to the FPGA. A real implementation of the proposed architecture has been developed using Handel-C, the RC1000-PP platform, a compatible Intel CPU, and a Visual C++ ActiveX control plug-in.
