JavaScript does have a just-in-time compilation step in most implementations these days. A quick scan of llvm-bc by a back end would be equally invisible to the user.

I just meant the user has to compile their language of choice to the llvm byte code, as I don't see browsers hosting a bunch of interpreters for different languages.

Only the developer would need to do the step of compiling to llvm-bc, not each user. The browser need only host the back end JIT compilation step.
