Interesting Facts About
Internet Explorer seems like a simple program. You start
it, type a web site address and the web site is displayed.
Not much functionality.
But programming something like Internet Explorer is an
involved task that takes years of programming, and a massive
amount of debugging (finding and correcting errors in the
Internet Explorer displays web sites. Web sites are written
in a language called HTML. HTML is a programming language
that is not too complex. HTML allows to define how text and
pictures is displayed on the screen by Internet Explorer.
Remember the phrase a picture is worth a thousand words?
That is true, to make a web page look nice, even as simple
as this web page, it takes a thousand words of programming
in HTML. For example, for each word you have to save the
size of the font, the color of the font, if it is in bold,
italics or underlined. What font to use, the location on
the page, the size of each line, and the spacing between
lines, and the spacing from the margins of the page.
Can you imagine writing a program that interprets all of
that just for a few lines of text to be displayed? Some
HTML coding does not specify the size of the pictures and
paragraph sizes until the picture or paragraph starts to
download to Internet Explorer. So before the picture or
paragraph starts to download, the page is formatting and
looks a certain way. As picture or paragraph is downloaded,
Internet Explorer needs to reformat the entire page based on
the downloaded picture and paragraph size.
Another serious programming challenge in Internet Explorer
is that web pages can be large. However, the user only sees
the first part of the web page until he or she scrolls
down. So Internet Explorer does not wait for the entire web
page to download before starting to display the page. Why
make the user wait 20 or 30 seconds? Internet Explorer
displays the page partially as the pages is downloaded. The
more is downloaded, the more is displayed.
So there is a code here that can display partially
downloaded web pages. This is hard to do because some
information that is yet to download may effect the format of
the entire page. So if the page keeps formatting and
re-formatting while the user watches the screen, the user
will not be able to read anything because everything will
jumping and moving around until the pages is fully
downloaded and fully formatted. Therefore, unless
Internet Explorer can decide how the page is going to look like
before download the entire page, there is no point in
predrawing the screen to the user.
So to avoid having the user wait 30 or 40 seconds for the
entire web site to download, we need to start rendering the
page as the web site is downloaded. Plus, we have to get it
right the first time drawing the page before the entire page
is downloaded. Difficult programming!
