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
- Embedding and displaying images
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
This seems to be usefull: WebCore Rendering. It is about Webkit's rendering engine.
