Felix Rieseberg:

This is Mac OS 8, running in an Electron app pretending to be a 1991 Macintosh Quadra. Yes, it's the full thing.

Via Dan Moren:

I fired it up to take it for a spin and it worked pretty well, though I did run into some bugs with scrolling (the scroll box doesn’t really move, though you can scroll down). It’s been pre-loaded with some games and demos, which Rieseberg apparently sourced from a Macworld Demo CD.

It’s even got Netscape, although the Internet connection doesn’t work.

This is amazing, but it's really too bad the Internet doesn't work. It would be pretty interesting to see what Mac OS 8 makes of modern websites, and I guess direct access to something like the Macintosh Garden would be quite useful.
