    1) Add a .NET reference to Micro$oft.mshtml library
    2) Use something like this:

    Private Sub AxWebBrowser1_DocumentComplete(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As AxSHDocVw.DWebBrowserEvents2_DocumentCompleteEvent) Handles AxWebBrowser1.DocumentComplete
      Dim document As mshtml.HTMLDocument = Me.AxWebBrowser1.Document
    End Sub
