Google's native client runs on Linux, and we are working on making Unity support native client, so, while no full native Linux support is planned for the time being, this is going to be step towards it, making Unity games work in Chrome under Linux, and on any other browser which decides to support native client in the future.

Unity works quite well under WINE (on Ubuntu) as far as I tested it. Even the image effects work if your graphics hardware supports them.

I only experienced some frame sync problems with higher resolutions.

Of course, thats not as good at direct and full support, but at least the Windows executables run under Linux this way.

You can download the windows version of firefox and try to install it and the webplayer plugin with wine. Not sure if it will work properly.

I tried installing it with wine and it doesn't work. The problem being that only Firefox 3.5 or 3.6 will run properly under Wine at this present time and the unityweb player requires the newer version.

I have tried unity under wine with every single browser I can think of, with no luck.

Unity 4 is going to have Linux support, as seen here. You can either do any of the work arounds listed above, or simply wait until Unity 4 is out and developers compile it for linux.
