If Im playing in browser, can I still use mods?
Like having custom skins, or an texture packs and stuff?

Skins and textures, sure, as long as you play from one computer. You'd have to reload them again if you play on a different one though.
As to other mods, ones that change the game, like the bridge blocks or different types of arrows, then no.

Yes, but if you want to be able to keep your skins from non-browser play and use them in browser play you need to use the same computer.
Hope this helps

Update, in case anyone else reads this. Texture pack handling is now built into the game. The main menu features a Mods & Texture Packs button, which in turn has a button that will open the appropriate texture pack folder on the host system. All that's needed to install a texture pack is to place a compressed pack in that folder, then load it using the game client. No more hunting for the minecraft folder, no more unpacking/repacking minecraft.jar. Download, drop the file in the folder, play.

I'll break this into 2 answers...
1) Your Custom Character Skin will follow with the in-browser client -- Your character skin is stored server-side, so you'll use it whenever you connect online.
2) Texture Packs & mods won't work with the in-browser client -- The main reason is that the game files are stored in your browser's cache (or Java's cache) & will be deleted sometime after you're done playing.
However, if you want to use Texture Packs & mods without getting locked into a computer, I suggest using Minecraft Portable ( at portableapps.com/node/25222 -- Windows ONLY). While this is an unofficial release, it stores all of Minecraft's client files onto a USB thumbdrive (stored at ~/Minecraft Portable/data/...) & can be modified as desired. The only changes done with this portable version is that the file storage is rerouted to use a thumbdrive instead of your computer's hard drive.
