How the Internet thing works


20 Things I Learned about Browsers and the Web”  is an online illustrated guide from Google aimed at casual users. You can browse though it to catch up on the buzz-words or pass it to friends & relatives who want to know about the Internet thing. It is also available in PDF format for offline reading.

It covers the following topics in a lighthearted, non-techincal way -
  • What is the Internet?
  • Cloud Computing
  • Web Apps
  • HTML, JavaScript, CSS and more
  • HTML5
  • 3D in the Browser
  • A Browser Madrigal
  • Plug-ins
  • Browser Extensions
  • Synchronizing the Browser
  • Browser Cookies
  • Browsers and Privacy
  • Malware, Phishing, and Security Risks
  • How Modern Browsers Help Protect You From Malware and Phishing
  • Using Web Addresses to Stay Safe
  • IP Addresses and DNS
  • Validating Identities Online
  • Evolving to a Faster Web
  • Open Source and Browsers
As it is built using HTML5, JavaScript and CSS3, it is best viewed with a HTML5-compliant browser.

A user named Nephron reports (in the comments section of this post) that the source is about 3500 lines of code & utilizes jQuery. Google plans to open source the entire code soon. The code for this web book is now open sourced on Google Code (2-June-2011)
