Chromebook SNES Emu /w controller configurable controls?

I'm just simply looking for a SNES emulator for Chromebook that I can reconfigure the controls to a controller for. The emus I have found either have no controller support, have support but you can't reconfigure the controls which doesn't auto bind that well with a joy con, or are a scam.
Edit: No, I didn't buy a [S]Crapbook[/S]Chromebook. It's from my school. I'm just looking for a way to pass the time since standardized testing is coming up and as a senior, we have no testing to do so were just shuffled into the auditorium during the tests.

    Well, it seems from the responses that there isn't an application that exists that is like what I was looking for.

    As for the phone idea, I do have a tablet and I can use my joycons on it but that's somewhat a pain since it's a school auditorium and there are no tables. I'm just going to close this since there doesn't seem to be any options.

    I was like you once.
    Um...if anything you should just set homebrew up on a 3DS. SNES9x runs pretty well and I was using that for the past year or two before I ended up breaking something (my fault).

    The default buttons are really not too bad once you learn how to actually place your hands on the keyboard. It's not some kind of weird alien thing.

    Assuming the ABXY buttons are azsx (or same general location), middle finger on a and index on z.

    the 3ds method sucks with the tiny screen and I'm sorry, it just does not feel right using a keyboard no matter how much I try

    Do you have a Chromebook with Android apps support? I'd imagine that most SNES emulators should work.

    The school disables support for that.

    I've never had to deal with a tiny screen since I've had a New XL for a while.
    If you have a phone, just get an emulator on that. If you're allowed to have it out, at least.

    If the district has disabled apps on everything, then I don't see any solutions to the issue. Maybe just watch a TAS on youtube or something?

    You said the school disables Android apps? What if you sign into a personal Google account instead of the school-provided one? At least that's what I do when I'm at school.

    No, it forces you to log into the chromebooks with there set of email accounts they gave to all the students

    I remember seeing something, using some old online emulator, that can run NES, SNES, Genesis, Game Boy (and Color), GBA, and maybe something else. I have it bookmarked on my school Chromebook that I don't have with me, I would try to link my school account to Chrome and look for it there, but Chrome is saying it would give the administrator of that account complete access to my history and stuff like that so lol nope

    There's Googulator with gamepad support, but no SNES, just NES and Gameboy.
