Interesting Facts About Internet Explorer

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 programming code).

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!
