    Embedding a browser inside a page


    Hi Guys,

    I have trawled through various sites but have been unable to find a satisfactory solution.

    What I would like to do is to embed a browser (preferable FF or Chrome) into a page and then send statements to the browser so it reflects what I am sending it. It is like a preview to help me perfect my instrctions.

    Has anyone got experience of this or knows the best way to go about it?

    Many thanks in advance,

    S

    Like an iframe? You can't embed one type of browser inside another browser. An iframe is essentially embedding a browser in a page. The actual instructions you can send to it are pretty limited, but that's as close as you could come.

    Actually there's an exception to that. It's called Google Chrome Frame. It's a plugin for IE6-9.

    Hi. I have seen products which embed a browd=ser into them.

    Have a look here:
