CefSharp - Embedded Chromium for .Net

This project contains .Net CLR bindings for The Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) by Marshall A. Greenblatt. The bindings are written in C++/CLI but can be used from any CLR language e.g. C# or VB. See the CefTest project for an example web browser built using this library.

This project is BSD licensed.
