The Internet Archive has released a collection of over 1,500 shareware programs for Windows 3.1, all of which can be run within your browser.

Archive.org is using the same JavaScript DOSBox emulation that it implemented for the release of its collections of old games for MS-DOS, antique game consoles, and arcades.
