I know of one Haskell applet running on the internet.

There are proposals for java byte-code backends for ghc. However, there
are currently no concrete products implementing such a backend. I know
three links to papers in this area, the last one coming with a Haskell applet
D. Wakeling wrote three papers which are available at
Martijn de Vries wrote a paper which is at
Alessandro Vernet wrote an article and a backend, but he mailed me
he lost the backend due to a computer crash.
Still, he has one haskell-applet (having the algorithm written in Haskell
and the GUI written in Java) which survived the crash. It is running at
