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.

Save the whales, feed the hungry, free the mallocs.
