When we load an HTML document, there is a lot that happens behind the scenes before the browser can render this content correctly. Have you ever wanted an overview of this process? Probably not! Come and find out everything you didn’t want to know about layout. Get serious answers to all the browsers mysteries including:

  • What the box-model has to hide,
  • How stacking contexts, stack up.
