Embedding Gecko Basics

Gecko Embedding Basics

Given the ever-growing importance of the Web as a source of information, entertainment, and personal connectedness, the ability to access and view data stored in HTML format is becoming more and more important for a wide variety of otherwise highly divergent software applications.
