Web Browsers?

Recommended Posts

Is there any good web browsers that can be used within FSX? It seems that there were a few before, but I can't seem to find them anywhere.

What do you mean by "within FSX"? Does the online help use a browser?

I want to be able to surf the web while using the simulator without having to put it into windowed mode and open my browser on my desktop.

Gotcha but as far as I know, if you are using FSX in full screen you are stuck

Darn. Thanks anyways. It wouldn't be a problem if FSX didn't pause whenever I click on something else while in windowed model.

Thats an easy fix, uncheck "Pause on Task' in the Settings

A second monitor is the way to go really. But actually it's quite a nifty idea, a mini web browser, ala a EFB, built in as a gauge or something???

Second monitor is great but still needs to be in windowed mode to use it, and have 'Pause on task' disabled

Problem with a 2nd monitor is that you have to run in windowed mode, which I know is a complete no-no for many, myself included. I'd rather eat my headphones.So I have a 2nd machine, ancient old thing but it's fine just for showing charts and weather etc.I could never figure out why they removed web functionality from the FSX kneeboard. FS9 was great for that.

I use an addon called InCabin Browser.I think they are out of business though the website comes up available and their forum on simflight network is in the old and locked section. Has not been used since 2008.
