Help with my web browser C#

Posted 26 January 2010 - 02:33 PM

Hi,
im preety knew to C# i know the basics and im working on being better. I have done about 10 browsers in vb but its not as good as C# because for vb u have to install all these things and it gets crazy. So in C# i want help on building a web browser so if u want to help or have a question please post a comment.Also i dont want a ordaniy browser. i was hoping to have 2 parts sort of. one being the new browser and 2 a new layout engine/web redering engine. so this would be totally unquie. In the past i have done web browser with some crazy features such as proxies, the browser with tabs, browsers using gecko and browser that look like ie
Thanks
josh

The installation needed for VB and C# is the same. I don't see your point. Or maybe I missed it while attempting to decipher your post.

Not the best at spelling stuff and structuring stuff. You can probably say things better than you can write them, in the literal sense.

Most people tend to prefer C# over VB.NET for most things once they learn it, each for his own reasons. I doubt it matters in this particular situation, but C# is a pretty good choice.

I don't really think any .NET language is a very good language for writing a browser in, simply because of being tied to a single platform. Yes, I know about Mono, but that only goes so far. If you don't mind being tied to Windows, C# is a good choice. Let's not turn this into a VB vs C# thread.

Um... you didn't really answer my question. :P

What is this browser going to bring to the table that others do not have?

Is it going to simplify social networking?
Is it going to have a built in Twitter client on the right side?
Is it going to allow you to copy the source of a selected area of a website easily?

Entice people so they will want to work with you. If English isn't your first language, who cares! Just try typing with proper punctuation and people are much more likely to respond.

Good luck man!

I believe Flock has the first two things you mentioned, actually.

We first off i want it to have to basics
Back
Forward
annd such
Built in proxie
Built in hidden browser mode
Hide and show tabs
Add ons
Social Intergration
Possibly 3d options
_______________________________________________________
Also i know this one is going to sound crazy but just think of it
Ok so imagaine an avatar sort of xbox or Wii like and its like a virtual world. so ur avatar would freind other avatars and when u where in 3d mode u could send links to freinds. another thing would be lets say u want to find out whats in a mall in Nj(Cause i live there) so i would click the mall and i would be able to walk around and meet other peolpe like a 3d mall.
I know it sounds very hard but it would be something new and then we have ads in the mall to make money. IT would be very unquie
Thanks

That mall idea sounds pretty nifty. :P

A couple of ideas for you:

You could scrape Amazon/whatever-site results for a users given geolocation and put them on shocases inside of the virtual mall. I'll let you handle the specifics though. xD It's not as easy as it sounds.

The avatar is a great idea! You could even go into a partnership with a flash game studio so if you have an avatar you can use that in certain flash games and earn points. Poeple love points, look at StackOverflow.l


I'll post more if I think of anything, but your idea certainly shows some nice ideas and if it gets made and has a polished look (not amateurish) people might use it.

All the best!

I can help with pretty much everything except the 3D mall thing. I have zero experience with anything in 3d graphics.

You can do the exact same thing in both languages.

True, you can end up doing the same thing, but VB isn't as good at it.
