Well, if you are wanting completely free and works on a mac look into Javascript. It will be a ton of work (as you will have to maek all the animation classes, frame handlers and everything else on your own), but it is do able. Now there are problems with Javascript as well, first you will have to save everything in a cookie, which can be deleted fairly easily, or you have to pay for a server get Ajax working and have a server-side scripting and a database.

No, C++ can't run in the browser. It only runs in the desktop or on the server.

Indeed, that would be a great idea. Silverlight is the way to go for interactive applications if you have experience with the .NET platform. You can use the SDK for free with a free IDE (bundled with .NET Framework).

Java is a good programming language for browser-based interactive application. If you have the time, take a look at it. Moreover, it is freely distributed and there are several development environments available for it, also free.
