Is the one feature you have been missing from Minecraft the ability to browse the internet from within the game? Then Web Displays Mod is just what you are looking for!
This mod lets you craft various parts that can be combined into an in-game browser, and you can make it however large you want it (minimum is 2×2 blocks though)!
It is pretty cool, and it is even functional, as right clicking elements of the screen when it’s turned on will use them, such as pressing a link will follow that link.
To change the website, shift + right-click the screen when it is turned on and type in whatever website you want to visit.
You can also create a MinePad, which serves as a smaller web browser in a item you can carry around, a keyboard and mouse for the big browser and a remote controller that can change the URL remotely.
Important: this mod requires Minecraft Forge as well as MCEF (MCEF is found with the download links below).
