MODS: I didn't know if this would be the right place to post this. Move it if you need to. I don't need to know before hand, so do whatever you need to.

So, as some of you know I'm working on a web browser. For fun. I want to see what some of you think about it, and I want to know what you think could use improvement.

Currently, the Menu strip does absolutely nothing. Execpt the Quit selection at File>Quit. Also, there isn't the ability to make new tabs. I'm working on that, but it'll be fixed after I figure out how to make it so you can change the name of your browser to whatever you like (This'll be good for if you want someone to think you're using Word, or some other program that they approve of instead of surfing the internet.).

Make me happy and surf the internet and tell me what I should add to make it work more towards your likes.

Download v0.2:

Bugs:
Menu Bar isn't working.
The Url Bar saves every letter you type into it as a new entry.
Browser Rename Box does nothing.

Thanks for your help!

what is the base renderer, firefox or ie?
also you need to worry about security in that case

ew.......
does the renderer come with security? or no? because that is something you might want to worry about

It should have IE security, but I'm completely sure so I'll check it out. Thanks.

Sylux, be nice.

Ok guys, there's a new update.

I've got the chat mostly figured out, but you can't connect to the server yet for some reason I'm trying to figure out.

The back button works, but the forward button isn't working. I gotta modify the code a little more, and soon favorites should work.

The name changing thing still is a no go. Sorry guys. I'm working on it.

Oh also, I like the browser you got going here. Has a kind of old Chrome feel to it. Though I did notice one thing, if you haven't already. When you drag the window down, some of the address bar stuff disappears, whilst some stuff overlaps.
Just make sure the browser isn't fullscreen, then drag down from the top to make it smaller, and you'll see what I'm talking about. Again, this is if you haven't found it first.

Oh frack. I need to figure out how to optimize the minimizing. Thanks for reminding me, Gunzet. You're awesome.
