That depends on what -exactly- you mean by "web browser object". You can embed a web browsing component like Lobo in a Swing application.

I want to open a new browser using java code, to be able to open an new child window from that. In short to be able to move around both the child and parent window.

Look for a JEditorPane with its editable attribute set false.

(historical note)One of the first serious Java applications created by the Java design team was a complete web browser called HotJava.(/historical note)
Archival copies can be found here.

This Wikipedia entry gives a nice history.

Although not clear from OP's post, smells like a Swing question. Moving to Swing forum.
