That was designed for the Windows "active desktop"

AFAIK there is no way to use it in Linux.

xwinwrap allows you to set a screensaver, or video as a desktop background, but not a webpage.

There's nothing to stop you from using a similar wallpaper, then overlaying it with a clock/calendar using something like Conky :)

Kind of .. "roll your own" as it were .. this approach would also give you much more control over the end product.
