First of all, please dont SCREAM!

Second, when you run the preview of your project, a local webservice is started. You can tell by looking at the URL in your Browser...

Please don't shout - it's very rude.

Construct 2 is a HTML5 2D game creation system, therefore it is obviously going to run in a browser, as it's HTML5. It can launch in any browser you specify, but it's local.

If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Did you miss the bit about offline support on our front page? Despite running in a browser Construct 2 games work offline. This is handy for Chrome Web Store apps, iOS web apps, etc.

test it on your pc? of course your testing it "on your pc" as in the game files are stored locally on your pc.
why was your webpage not supported?
but it is not "on your pc" like Game Maker because game maker runs exe files (is that what you mean by "on your pc"?) while c2 runs html5 games in browser (which is much better imo)
