Sure, download the HttpCli component from:

http://www.rtfm.be/fpiette/httpcliuk.htm

It has good examples. However you have to parse the returned html code yourself.

just drag a TNMhttp component to your form, and add following code:

var
  txt:string;
begin
  nmhttp1.get('http://www.xxx.com');
  txt:=nmhttp1.body;
end;
