The Reflex level editor supports click-and-drag "painting" and is written entirely in JavaScript.  Also tested in both IE and FireFox.

While a big part of a Crazy Balloon editor would be tile-based, balloon placement could be handled separately.  It could follow its own set of rules for positioning and actually overlay the tile graphics using CSS.
