I installed and set up MiniDLNA on my Pi/Raspbian and it is working absolutely fine.
However, I thought of a web client for it so that I can run it on the Pi and play the media from anywhere with a browser. Is there something like that?

I use a mpd (music player daemon) on my pi and an mpc on the client side(macbook, phone and tablet). You also can install a web-based client (mpc) like rompr and use it from any browser. I think this is the best solution to listen music, because there are a lot of different clients for different os. You also can connect with more than one client to the server (mpd) - very practical for parties, if the guests complain about the music, you can submit a tablet around and everyone can add his music to a playlist.
I am using Logitech Media Server (formerly SqueezePlug server) as a streaming server at my home. At my work laptop squeezeplug client installed. I believe that it's a better solution than DLNA. (I'm using DLNA to stream video to my TV by the way.)
There is a installation document for Logitech Media Server: http://allthingspi.webspace.virginmedia.com/lms.php
There are many solutions work as 'streaming server' to use on RPi.
