Hi all! As of 15 minutes ago, I have made a web browser, although it doesn't contain many features right now, I figured I'd show my progress :D

It currently contains a Home button, Refresh button, and of course an Addressbar. I don't know much about coding, more specifically in Python, but I am getting a grasp of the basics. I'm posting this here for two reasons: 1) So I can get suggestions of what to add. 2) So I can get help if I'm stuck or need help, so I can ask the forum. It took me about 4-5 hours to make it come this far. I also added an "About" page so you can see the version and credits, although I don't know what to do about the Licenses. So tell me what you think :)

What's the rendering and layout engine? Are you using one of the common ones like WebKit or Gecko? KHTML perhaps?

Also which libraries are you using to draw the Window and handle events?

So it has been a small amount of time, and now I have a Back button and Forward button :) I do have to make it compatable with flash player, and was wondering if anyone knew how. I am clueless. I'm happy with it and am going to try to get it to be an Executable file for Windows. I'm already on that :lol: Also, how would I be able to not put in "http://" or "https://" ? Thats the only way I'm able to get to websites :?

So, I'm having great difficulties trying to find a way to make my browser into C++ format, and was wondering if somebody could point me in some direction. I'm using python and am stuck when trying to compile the files to a single .py or .exe (if even possible). Can anyone help?
