How to test a web app from PlayBook Simulator

Is there a way to test a flash based webapp from playbook simulator? I dont see a browser in simulator interface so i guess directly this may not be possible! how about an AIR application calling a web URL, will this be possible?

If you search the forum, you will find at least two web browser sources.  The simulator doesn't support  youtube video yet, but I suspect the next upgrade (whenever that happens) will.

download these sample code : http://us.blackberry.com/developers/tablet/RSSReader.fxp

you will find some code that can be use to make embedded webkit browser that can test your web apps.

just keep in mind even though the API for the web view is available its still pretty buggy and not complete yet. As Harry stated completed and bug free (at least for the most part) will be available at a later time according to RIM. an app or two of mine have crashed when trying to run the webview component. im not a fan of it yet.
