In times like that, I wish I had quick

If I could just open a browser on the client's PC and visit a website
that boots up a GNU/Linux with useful tools like that, it would be
pretty amazing.

The problem is that to be able to implement tools like that, the browser would need to offer access to the local network at a level that would be a serious security risk. While nmap and netcat/socat can be great for development and troubleshooting, they are also great for an intruder's recon efforts to prepare further intrusions. 8-| Do you want ad companies routinely port-scanning your LAN?
