LambdaWebBrowser is a web browser widget you can use in editor or in game. It is based on Epic's WebBrowser plugin but has added functionalities accessible in blueprints (such as proper Previous/Next functionalities, a history and favorites).


The editor browser spawns in a tab you can dock in the editor's main window. It can be used to browse the web, play music or videos while working.


The runtime browser comes in two flavors, a widget that contains an interface and some customizable options or a widget that contains just the web browser without the UI, useful if you want to make your own.


IMPORTANT: The runtime browser should be compatible with the following platforms, but without testing I cannot guarantee it: Linux, IOS & PS4.

(Note that these platforms will need to be manually added to the WhiteListPlatform list in LambdaBrowser/LambdaBrowser.uplugin).
