There is an example of the geolocation API for firefox here:

Unfortunately (for Thomas) this does not read GPS data yet:
There are a few common ways to get location information.
The most common are local WiFi networks, IP address information, and 
attached GPS devices.
In Firefox 3.5 we use local WiFi networks and IP address information to 
try and guess your location.
