What is a web browser?
How to Web Browsers Work ?
A web browser typically reads and renders HTML documents. This happens inside the browser as two stages - the parsing stage and the rendering stage. During the parsing stage, the browser reads the markup in the document, breaks it down into components, and builds a document object model (DOM). When the DOM tree has been constructed, and any CSS style sheets have been loaded and parsed, the browser starts the rendering stage. Each node in the DOM tree will be rendered and displayed in the browser.
