It's not embedding a browser, per se, just the content from one page only. You can't browse with it but at set intervals the content will refresh keeping your "wallpaper" current with the website.

You either have it on your desktop as an "object" similar to Vista or Window 7 gadgets or you can have it full screen as a wallpaper.

What would you like on the desktop (i.e. what website?) although you can not embed it anymore as this was removed in Vista there may be a gadget that relates to the website you would have had.

Such as the picture you posted had Bing, there are gadgets to do a Bing search.

If it was Bing you were after then try this.

Bing - Windows Live Gallery
