Can you explain what you have in mind? Do you actually want to
create a web browser like IE or FireFox from scratch using Python?

Or do you want to control your existing web browser using python?

Or do you want to simply fetch some data from the web using python?

If its the first then I suggest you start with Grail and try to
bring it up to date. If its the second there are some modules
around that help, specifically there is one for IE. And Konqueror
in Linux/KDE has a programmable intrface that you probably can use,

If its the last one you probably don;t need a browser but should
investigate the urlib module.
