Then you'll have to write your own rendering engine to interpret html5 and css3 in such a way that it makes a decent screen out of everything you throw to it. Usually (for Mozilla, Opera, Google and Microsoft) that's a project that takes many, many men-years of work.

I'd start with the most simple html-file imaginebale. That's a .html file containing only the text Hello world! without any tags.

you don't need tcp/ip to develop the webview equivalent. Any browser can read a html-file from your local hard disk. You only need tcp/ip to read it from the internet. Since your own hard disk is faster, it makes sense to work local until it's really needed to go remote.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
