Program Manager Intern Interview(Student Candidate) Redmond, WA

Describe in as much detail as possible what happens between

  when a user submits a URL to a web browser and that page is displayed.

Interview Answer

1 Answer


The key here is the technical nature of networks and web browsers: once the browser fetches the HTML for a page (after resolving the domain to an IP using DNS), it then has to fetch the resources (images, objects) after that. It doesn't all come down from the web server at once.
