BYOB (Build Your Own Browser)

After a day of banging through the fundamentals of the C language, I decided to take a "break" and found a tutorial on building your own web browser in Cocoa with the help of Apple's WebKit. Sure, it's super-basic, and doesn't do much more than forward/back/reload/print, but for about 15 minutes in Interface Builder and a couple lines of code, I'm pretty damn impressed. Of course, I have no clue how I did it, but it was a fun diversion nontheless.
