    Question own web browser


    Does anybody know if ther is anyway that I could cread my own simple web browser using .net technology or visual studio 6.0?

    The only features that i'm intrested in are: having the browser surf the web - and of course it has to be able to handle web forms, get/post messages I mean, and the second and very important issue is that I want the browser to be able to providethe source code for a web page that it is displaying.

    Thanks

    Of course I've tried looking it up on-line but I couldn't find an answer to match my question.

    After a long period of wondering around I have found some kind of answer to my own question. The answer is pretty simple and was laying in front of me. I used the Microsoft WebBrowser and Microsoft HTML Controls and TADA.... I got my own web browser with the capability to retrieve the source code of the web page...

    I guess It's not bad but if there's somebody out there that knows how to connect to a web site via WinSockets or with WebRequest or something like that please let me know because I'd be interested in connecting to the website and then using my Username ad password to post a HTTP POST message on the form so I can visit the pages pertaining to the site.
    P.S. the web site uses HTTPS....

    So if you guys wanna write to me you can do it on: dinescumiky@hotmail.com
