How browsers work

August 19, 2011

What happens after you hit Enter on a browser? A lot. And the people over at HTML5 Rocks have taken the time to explain every nitty gritty detail about [how a web browser works](http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/internals/howbrowserswork/).

You’ll need to freshen up that beverage before you sink your teeth into this article. If you don’t have time now I suggest using [Instapaper](http://instapaper.com) to save it for later.
