    Question How does a browser work?

    Hi all,

    I'm searching for some in-depth information about how browsers work:

    • Requesting and downloading files from a webserver via HTTP
    • Parsing and renderung HTML and CSS
    • Executing JavaScript
    • Embedding and displaying images
    • etc.


    I found some information about this topic on developer.mozilla.org and maybe it's a good idea to study Firefox's source code. But I would like to have some detailed articles and books as well.

    Any hints are much appreciated

    Cheers
