Friday evening (May 15, 2009) was the debut of Stephen Wolfram's "Wolfram Alpha".   It officially went public on Monday (May 18, 2009) from the web site at:
    http://www.wolframalpha.com/index.html

According to this article:
    http://www.hpcwire.com/features/Wolfram-Alpha-Boots-Up-45364022.html
Wolfram Alpha employs HPC clusters for its computational hardware.   And at launch time, the application had access to about 10,000 x86 CPUs spread across five data-centers.

Apparently there are still a few problems to work out, based upon what the article states, but it is interesting to see that queries for fractals can be generated with varying iterations specified.
