What would be the quickest way to write an application using Gecko as the html rendering engine?  basically just want to write an app that will let the user open several gecko windows within the main program window and close and minimize them, then i can go from there adding further functionality. thanks.

Th eprobably easiest way would be to use he Mozilla ActiveX control: http://www.iol.ie/~locka/mozilla/mozilla.htm ("Mozilla ActiveX Project"). See also http://www.zeit.ca/mozie/ ("MOZiE")

If you are not on Windows or simply don't like ActiveX, you could go that route: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/embedding/embedoverview/EmbeddingBasics.html ("Gecko Embedding Basics" and the following pages)
