Frontloading keywords works with the reader who is reading left to right.
It should work in any case unless you're in an ancient browser. A script carries directionality information, so any truncated text will be truncated at the end, regardless of whether that's right or left. I just tested this quickly with a made-up document with long quasi-Hebrew title opened in multiple tabs. The text started at the beginning (right edge of available space) and the dotdotdot that marks truncation was on the left.
