Browser-side Javascript public key encyption

It is possible to use browser side javascript to encrypt and decrypt content, including the use of RSA public key encyption. See RSA Algorithm Javascript Page. For efficiency, public key encyption methords generaly decodes a randomly generated key for the single key encyption which encypts the plaintext. It should be possible to use public key encryption with inspected outgoing and incoming email gateways to ensure email content privacy. Client side Javascript is used to generate the public and private keys. Single key encryption using a "privacy password" is used to encrypt the private key to store it server side.
