Does WebBrowser Control shares the Internet setting with IE Browser?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    My project is going to use WebBrowser control to load web pages in WinForm application, and this is new to me.
    I am wondering if the WebBrowser control shares the same Internet setting with IE browser.
    1. If any option is modified in the Internet Options (the one in control panel),  does it affect the WebBrowser control??
    2. Does WebBrowser have the same browsing capability as IE Browser does? Is any kind of web pages that IE Browser can read, but WebBrowser control cannot??

    I would be really appreciated if anyone can tell me. This would help a lot in my project's early design. Thanks in advance!!

  • Yes.  WebBrowser *is* Internet Explorer, just without the frame.
