Hi Agnivesh,

You need to give the URL you want in the Url text box, present in the properties,which appears upon right clicking the web page viewer object.

not all websites work with this extension...they have checks to see if they are being loaded into a frame which is what this extension creates. google, yahoo, msn and facebook will generate errors and won't load into the extension.
