Sure - here's what I've used:

(The browser is drawn in an image control called "browserimage"; and 
there's a group called "WebBar" that contains a field for the location 
("Location"), as well as a "Go" button) 

on preOpenCard
  -- We pass the windowId of the stack to revBrowser
  -- so that it can determine which window to place the
  -- browser object into
  put the windowid of this stack into tWinID
  -- Open the browser, using the windowId and initial url
  put revBrowserOpen(tWinID,"") into sBrowserId
  set the uBrowserID of this stack to sBrowserID
  -- Set some basic properties for the browser
  revBrowserSet sBrowserId,"rect",rect of img "browserimage"
  revBrowserSet sBrowserId,"showborder","true"
  put "" into fld "Location"
  enable group "WebBar"
end preOpenCard

Hope this helps,
