Python web browser with Tkinter

Python Tkinter File Operations and Integration: Exercise-10 with Solution

Write a Python program to build a program that integrates a web browser. Allow users to navigate websites within the Tkinter application.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

import tkinter as tk
import webbrowser

class WebBrowserApp:
    def __init__(self, root):
        self.root = root
        self.root.title("Simple Web Browser")

        # Create an Entry widget for URL input
        self.url_entry = tk.Entry(root, width=40)
        self.url_entry.pack(padx=10, pady=10)

        # Create a "Go" button to navigate to the entered URL
        self.go_button = tk.Button(root, text="Go", command=self.navigate)

        # Create a Text widget to display web content
       # self.text_widget = tk.Text(root, wrap=tk.WORD, height=20, width=80)
       # self.text_widget.pack(padx=10, pady=10)

    def navigate(self):
        url = self.url_entry.get()
            # Open the URL using the default web browser
        except Exception:

if __name__ == "__main__":
    root = tk.Tk()
    app = WebBrowserApp(root)


In the exercise above -

  • Import the necessary modules.
  • Create a WebBrowserApp class with an init method to build the Tkinter application.
  • Inside the application, we have an "Entry" widget for entering URLs, a "Go" button to trigger navigation, and a Text widget to display web content.
  • The navigate method is called when the "Go" button is pressed. It retrieves the URL from the "Entry" widget and opens it using the default web browser.
