Full Version: any relationship between start render and dom content loaded events ?
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
as I see sometimes "start render" is before "dom content loaded" and sometimes the opposite.

so is there any specification under what circumstances these events are ready to be fired ?

and actually as I observed, different browsers have different behavior....

Thanks!
When a browser chooses to do a layout/render is entirely up to the discretion of the browser and it's implementation (assuming the necessary pieces to do the layout have arrived). Ilya has a great talk on it if you have a few hours to spare: https://plus.google.com/+IlyaGrigorik/posts/iEfnHUs8Pwk
