I did NOT create the k_Stray32.ocx it comes from Karland International. I have tried to get in touch with them, but their website is down and all emails bounce back. So my recognition of their OCX goes here :-)

The program was written for somebody who works for a web hosting/ search engine company. And the browser is set to the 4 admin pages that are used. I have replaced these with searchengines for security.

The idea of the program is as follows:

  1. Be able to use 4 browsers independantly that do NOT show in taskbar.
  2. Be able to add/remove URL's to each browser independantly.
You can also add URL's by clicking edit... and typing the URLs directly into notepad. **YOU MUST DO THIS BEFORE YOU START THE PROGRAM OR THE COMBO LIST WILL BE OVERWRITTEN WHEN YOU ADD ANOTHER URL**

I have tried to comment the code throughout, however as there are 4 instances of every object (usually ending with 0-3, which refers to Tab0 - Tab3), I have therefore just commented one of the four as they all do the same thing.

I am just starting to leard VB and am studying for ms 70-175 and ms 70-176 exams. The code has been tested thoroughly over the last week in the clients workplace, and has shown no problems. It has run on WIn 2000 and win XP (which it was written on)

I would very much appreciate any comments or criticism of the project or the way I have coded it.
