[Link] How Do Browsers Work?

Post icon  Posted 14 February 2012 - 08:07 AM


This is a question that most people ignore, why would we need to know how a browser works? Well Tali Garsiel did not ignore it, in fact... she researched it very well. Her research has been published on HTML5 Rocks and is extremely interesting, so much so that I think I am going to download the source to webkit and/or gecko and take a look for myself.


In the years of IE 90% dominance there was nothing much to do but regard the browser as a "black box", but now, with open source browsers having more than half of the usage share, it's a good time to take a peek under the engine's hood and see what's inside a web browser. Well, what's inside are millions of C++ lines...

I have featured this because I think it may be of interest to those who might not pop into web dev very often.
