The .netcf 2.0 provides a web browser control. This inspired me to try and create my own Web Browser based on .net technology.
The “WebBrowser” control has some serious limitations. These include:
No “Title” property
Back/Next not supported (on 2003 only?)
Can’t access the “Document” object
Can’t change the context menu
Inability to set options such as formatting, cleartype, textsize etc (ie Anything useful)
Inability to access/invoke the favorites infrastructure
If you think about it, these are fairly major.
I overcame most of these problems in a few ways in Webby.
