No, the hardware is emulated but it's just an ordinary (small) linux instance which presumably would run on any similar x86 system. See the 'technical notes' linked from below the emulator.

It doesn't seem to run on Chrome though. He says he thinks is a bug in Chrome (the notes say v11 but it still won't boot in v13).

yeh, but this is running in a browser, not x86 system. The browser could be running in x86, but that doesnt matter.

What Duncan means is that it is a small standard x86 Linux system that would run on any x86 hardware. Instead it is running on emulated x86 hardware. The emulation is done in JS.
