A few companies have been toiling away on in-game Web browsers to make Alt-Tabbing a thing of the past. They figure you shouldn't have to leave the game and tempt lady luck to hawk a juicy one your way if you want to check a few scores, and find a FAQ. Programs like PlayXpert, Rogue, Xfire, and even Steam let you hit up the Web without leaving the action. All of the solutions are fairly young and consequently have their quirks (think gleek rather than loogie), but they are getting better over time. Read on to learn about four of the more promising in-game browsing applications.
