I am looking into Tkinter. But i am not sure if it will actually work. This
maybe a crazy idea but i was wondering if i can put a web browser in the
frame. I have tried to use Tkinter to resize and place the windows to
certain areas of the screen but that's not working or the way im approaching
this problem is completely wrong. I want to make a program that will have
websites displayed in specific areas of the screen. I was planning on using
the program on the big screen. So is it possible to put the web browser
inside the frame in Tkinter?
