Great simple way to learn a bit more about how the web works

Here's a really lovely way to go back to basics and update your understanding of the internet.  It's a beautifully designed on-line book from Google that helps you know your TCP/IP from your elbow.

Taking all of 20 minutes to read, what a great presentation focussed on browsers (it's by the Chrome team after all) with only one slightly obvious selling bit in the middle about old browsers.

The rest of it is really helpful - especially if you're one of those lucky people who don't have the pleasure of working web-related things all day....




So now you'll know all of the secrets of the fantastic technology, the inspiring breakthroughs, the genius minds that went into creating an infrastructure so perfect that it takes under three milliseconds to find a really stupid picture of a cat.
