Firefox is written in C++.

You can use the internet from your VB application.

In VB6:

Create a standard EXE,
Right click on the toolbar and select components,
Tick "Microsoft Internet Controls",
Now you will have the webbrowser control on your toolbar,
Deag it onto your form and size it as you want,
To navigate to a page with it use the code:
- WebBroswer1.Navigate "http://www.google.com"

Just a hint. 'Hey everyone, can I ask a question?' is not a good title for a thread. For one thing, everyone here is asking questions. For another, people will either ignore the thread because it doesn't tell them that the thread might be about an area that they are interested or experienced.

You can edit your original post and change the title to something more enlightening.
