The web browser object is an active x control you can use to mimic a web browser in your own apps. It is delivered with IE3 and IE4, so there is no need to download it from anywhere. But: you'll have to import it with the ActiveX import utility that can be reached via Delphi's main menu.

If you are in spite of sources, just ask.

Go to Install ActiveX components and install Microsoft Internet Controls.  It will then appear in your ActiveX tab.  

To go to a url use this.

function GotoURL( TheURL : String) : Boolean;
var
  url,flags,targetframename,postdata,headers: OLEVariant;
begin
  try
    WebBrowser1.SetFocus;
    url:= TheURL;
    flags:=0;
    targetframename:= '_self';
    headers:='';
    postdata:='';
    WebBrowser1.Navigate(url,flags,targetframename,postdata,headers);
  except
    Result := False;
  end;
  Result := True;
end;

Just pass it the URL you want to go to.

There are a ton of functions like

WebBrowser1.Back
WebBrowser1.Forward
WebBrowser1.Refresh

to name a few...

You can not direct a download from IE4 to your application, but you can do the opposite.

Let me know if you need more info...
