Is there a beamer package that will display a non-static, locally hosted web page? I think I am looking for something similar to Keynote's old web view, but since I have Keynote 09, I'm in a pickle.

This question is similar to Beamer and JavaScript in a web browser, which currently does not have a satisfactory answer. Like this poster, I would prefer to not have to click on a link and navigate away from the presentation.

Short answer: no.

Longer answer: PDF files, which are produced by TeX (either directly or via DVI) do not have the possibility to show the type of dynamic content required here. This essentially requires a web rendered 'built in' or 'called' by the viewer, and that is not part of the PDF spec.
