You do not need a browser based client to accomplish this requirement.
Just make your live web site be a checkout of your trunk. You then just
need a simple 1 or 2 line script which runs the svn update command. You
can then run it on a schedule, or as part of a hook, or just make a link on
a web page that initiates the script.

I am not aware of any full featured browser-based client for SVN. It would
be fairly hard to do because there would not be a working copy to drive the
libraries, or you would have to maintain one on the server which seems kind
of odd.
