Embedded Web Browser in 3D

Posted on:May 02 2007

Callum Prentice (ubrowser) told me that his embedded web browser works together with Irrlicht. Yep, that's that thing known from Second Life. It also looks very nice in Irrlicht:

At it's heart, it uses the Mozilla Gecko rendering engine that is used in Firefox 2. The Irrlicht integration still needs a bit of work, like input. Get the source here and the binary with some demos here. Would be cool if someone is interested in improving and developing this further.


uBrowser is cool. Someone did an Ogre implementation a few months back (http://www.ogre3d.org/wiki/index.php?title=UOgreBrowser) and it seemed to work really well, including page navigation etc - perfect for a rich UI. The only issue they had was flash, some problem with knowing that the page was updating I believe. But very cool. Seems to run pretty quick too, definitely feasible for real time.

I like it! Making no promises of finishing it, but I certainly will have a play with it!
