    Well, the browsers are written in Win32 API, right? Do they access the internet through Windows commands or C++ Console commands?

    >>> they access the internet through

    Sockets. If your on a Windows platform, search Google for "WinSock".

    Only Windows browsers.

    If you want a sockets library, you might search Sourceforge.
