A boolean specifying whether debugging mode is on or not.
A string specifying the initial URL.
browser-pane is a pane that embeds a pane that can display HTML. Navigation in the pane happens either by the user clicking on hyperlinks, or by the application using browser-pane-navigate. The various callbacks gives the program information on what happens in the window and can be used to control (for example, to block or redirect pages).
When before-navigate-callback is non-nil, it is called before any navigation (whether programmatic or by the user), and gives the application control over whether to perform the navigation. The callback must have this signature:
is the pane that navigates, and
is a string to which it wants to navigate.
is true when the navigation is for a sub-frame inside the current URL, otherwise
nil or the name of a sub-frame when the navigation is to a sub-frame.
To perform a redirection, just call browser-pane-navigate to the required URL, and return
pane is the pane that wants to open a new window, and url is a string containing the URL that the new window will navigate to. context is a string containing the URL of the page from which the request comes.
On Microsoft Windows, new-window-callback is invoked from the "NewWindow3" event (or "NewWindow2" for old versions) of the sink of the underlying IWebBrowser2. If not cancelled, the pane opens a new normal Internet Explorer window.
document-complete-callback is called when, as far as the system is concerned, all the data for the URL has been loaded and is displayed in the pane. There is only one call to document-complete-callback for each navigation of the pane.
If navigate-complete-callback is non-nil, it is called whenever a navigation completes. navigate-complete-callback can be called several times for each navigation of the pane. It must be a function with the signature:

event-name is a string specifying the event. args is a vector containing the arguments in order. The callback is called before any code that is used to implement the callbacks, which is called afterwards with the same argument vector. That means that the callback should not set anything in the vector, except when debugging.

specifies that the pane should be in debugging mode. Currently, on Microsoft Windows this means that it prints each event and the arguments that it receives.

browser-pane-successful-p tests whether the navigation to the current URL completed successfully, returning
