Kodi does not have a webbrowser, if that's your intention. You can however read/load the content of a website, process it via python and then feed the desired databack to Kodi in the way you want, but I'm the wrong person to explain how to do that (I'm not a python dev). We however have some examples and tutorials on our Wiki to get started Add-on_development (wiki)

which OS are we talking about?

It might be possible depending on the OS and what might be available. So we need more info about the system in general.

If you are on Android you are in luck

Da-anda...i don´t want a webbrowser
You said ". You can however read/load the content of a website, process it via python and then feed the desired databack to Kodi in the way you want,"

I am quite sure this will be the solution...can you redirect me to the correct tutorial....I have never used Python before but i learn quickly....
Thank you

I probably could assist in a bit with Kodi+python under linux. I absolutely have zero knowledge for android.

Ok, but let's start somewhere. Might take a bit, but could be fun Wink

Do I understand it correctly....you open an addon, paste an URL in some text field, hit "OK" and then magically a browser which is installed in Windows should open loading that specific URL?

This is becoming addon development - moving again.

We do not provide email assistance.

You can display anything you like in a kodi dialog, download the page, process it, display.

Kodi has no built in web browser.

Oh and which add-on are you referring to? i.e. where you see this happening?

gamezone69:
Your request is vague.
I'm going to assume you already have an addon you're working on

Code:
import requests
a=requests.get('https://www.google.com')
xbmc.log(a.text,xbmc.LOGNOTICE)
you get the raw html in a.text
