That is pretty much what AOL is though... All it is missing is the chat function
See, this is where you went off the rails. AOL is a service provider and besides a browser (that used to be Netscape) it is (was?) many other tools. Making your own browser is fine, what I am saying is that when you are explaining something to someone it will help you if you can clarify what you are trying to achieve. In this case, get a lot less ridicule that you have had to suffer when you said you want to recreate AOL.
All in all, it seems to me that you are just starting to learn development, which is fine (everyone starts somewhere. I started 20 years ago with VB 2.0... so I have that to live with. Anyway....) I enjoy writing code, and everything that is said here, even by those who are mocking you, is attempts at trying to steer you in the correct direction.
Best of luck.
