Meltdown, Spectre: The password theft bugs at the heart of Intel CPUs

I've still to read any mechanism whereby browsing a website can read kernel memory - any ideas?

It's not going to be HTML, CSS or JS is it?

So how can a website harvest your kernel memory exactly?

Answers rather than downvotes please, it's a genuine question.
