There was a project to develop a Python web browser, called Grail, but 
it is long dead.

wxPython has support for displaying HTML, that might be a better place 
to start than Tkinter.

I don't know what your goal is, if it is just to learn and play then go 
for it, but if you are a beginning programmer and seriously thinking 
about creating a full-featured web browser...well, you should probably 
take on something smaller first.
