Bang on - when most people say they "made a browser", they mean they hacked one together using something like VB
which has a built in browser component. Not that this is a bad thing per-se, but definitely isn't creating your own from scratch... and as pointed out you'll likely just end up with the penultimate IE without some of its features.
