The browser: It's that one window that you never close. How exactly does the browser work, and how has it changed from a simple document viewer to the platform it is today?

Next month sees this year's State of the Browser conference, and Adam will be giving a primer on all things 'browser' to get you prepared. You'll learn the fundamentals of the browser; how it's changed in form and function, how we've seen it spread across platforms, and how it's becoming an operating system in its own right. We'll touch briefly on the underlying browser engine that makes it all happen, before moving on to a session on the APIs and languages that developers use to create pages for the browser (HTML, CSS and JavaScript).

A year's a long time in the web world, and the talk will end with the new developments that we've seen in the last 12 months and exciting demonstrations of how they might push the browser to new levels.
