Interesting talk from “Chromium University 2020”, digging into Chrome’s Rendering Pipeline.
A tour of the internals of Chromium’s rendering architecture, tracing the steps in the pipeline from web content to display pixels. Concretizes high-level concepts with pointers to important classes and data structures in the codebase
While the main concepts — such as a Main Thread and a separate Compositor Thread — covered in the video still stand, some things have changed by now. For example Composite After Paint — in the video still considered a future evolvement — shipped with RenderingNG in 2021.
