If you want to impress your local nerd, Github has the complete explanation of what happens from the moment you type google.com in your browser and press enter, to when the page actually loads. And I mean complete.
This repository is an attempt to answer the age old interview question "What happens when you type google.com into your browser's address box and press enter?"
Except instead of the usual story, we're going to try to answer this question in as much detail as possible. No skipping out on anything.
This is a collaborative process, so dig in and try to help out! There's tons of details missing, just waiting for you to add them! So send us a pull request, please!
