    Well, first of all you used the IE framework, instant no no.

    You have to extend the width of the window to see the scroll bar, or at least I did.

    You can't just press enter to navigate, you have to click "go".

    It's a very bland UI.

    At least it works, lol.

    Things like this are very pointless at least, not worthy of posting, because no one cares about a generic IE component browser with limited tools and security.

    Move onto other things and perhaps a better language to get more knowledgeable with good programming practices. I.E C#, C++.

    You can't compare the two. VB is a desktop language PHP is a server side language. The only common theme is they share some dynamic typing structures.

    Learn a solid typed language like C# / Java or C++ if your serious about learning desktop side programming.

    As much as everyone says VB is a good starter language it often gives you many bad habbits.

    Gonna add to this that it may be a bit better to start with C#. Start with terminal apps, then get into using different API's to make UI's and stuff for the programs. From there you should be better prepped for C++, etc.
