System.Net contains the ever useful WebClient class.

This allows code such as:

System.Net.WebClient wc = new System.Net.WebClient();
byte[] myDataBuffer = wc.DownloadData(url);
string download = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetString(myDataBuffer);

This allows the text at a given url to be extracted.
