Directly? No - they are two distinct things.

However, running JavaScript (via LCB) in the HTML5 engine is equivalent 
to running JavaScript (via LCB) in a browser widget... The only 
'difference' being in the latter it happens in the browser widget you 
say, as opposed to the browser running the (HTML5) engine. Of course, 
making good use of LCB JavaScript bindings is contingent on having 
synchronous JS execution - which we have in the HTML5 engine (due to how 
it is implemented), but we don't with the browser widget (due to how the 
embedded browsers we use work).

Warmest Regards,
