It is paid, and also not available for download yet. Kindly let me know if there is any other way to achieve the same.

The only other method is to use a terminal services server and publish it as a Remote App.  Users can then access the DB through a browser.  Some also use Citrix to do the same.   You are however not running it as a web app.   Your doing a RDP session via a browser.

Beyond that, there is nothing you can do with a Access Desktop app to make it available through a browser.
