This code establishes a DDE connection to the browser (service specified in the Servicio variable) and returns the current URL.  THis code has been tested and works correctly in Netscape and in IExplore.   Be sure to add the DDEMan unit in your project's *uses* clause.

function Get_URL(Servicio: string): String;
var
 Cliente_DDE: TDDEClientConv;
begin
  Result := '';
  Cliente_DDE:= TDDEClientConv.Create( nil );
  with Cliente_DDE do
    begin
      SetLink( Servicio,'WWW_GetWindowInfo');
      Result := StrPas(RequestData('0xFFFFFFFF'));
      CloseLink;
    end;
  Cliente_DDE.Free;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender);
begin
 showmessage(Get_URL('Netscape'));
    or
 showmessage(Get_URL('IExplore'));
end;

This function will return something like "http://some.url.com","Web Page Title"

Cheers,

Raymond.
