    Question Speeding up my homepage

    Can anyone point me in the direction of detailed info about how browsers (esp. IE) work. By work I mean how they communicate with the server and the order in which files are requested. I understand that they use HTTP protocol/data packets etc. and believe that the initial HTML download is a single thread, subsequent requests are multi-threaded.

    But what I really need is to understand how browsers deal with external files such as images, javascript, external style sheets etc. and how they render code that is written out by document.write statements.

    The overall goal is by better understanding of the browser's behavior I can structure my homepage in a fashion that takes advantage of this. Ultimately to speed up my homepage.

    Any help would be much appreciated.
