Well, it's not so difficult to instantiate the control in a simple window.
But you have to integrate it with a toolbar, status bar, address bar,
and you presumably want to be able to use bookmarks.
By the way: many people swear on Opera or other browser like Avant
because they provide a MDI user interface. But I think for ROS a browser
with an interface similar to MSIE is enough.
I'm also using the Explorer source code to create this browser GUI.
My version currently even does not yet compile without problems. ;-)
But I think it will not take too long until you can see something running.
