How a web browser works

Holy Chicken Necks!

Dave Hyatt, of WebKit fame, has posted some excellent articles on how a web browser actually works behind the scenes on things like floats, positioning and more, at webkit.org. The code gymnastics that a properly rendering browser has to perform for implementing complex CSS has always been “magic” to me. Dave gives us a peek behind the curtain of the magic show that is Safari.

I don’t following the WebKit blog enough so I just caught the posts, but I love this kind of stuff.
