What is Rendering?

Rendering is the process of converting initial HTML to rendered HTML. It is the process wherein a browser converts website code into the visible content we see. 

Browsers render websites using a rendering engine. For example, Chrome and other Chromium browsers use the Blink engine. 

If browsers do not render a website, then the visitor will be presented with the website code. This is not user-friendly, and the website will be gibberish unless you are a computer programmer. 

Every website has two forms: 

  • Initial HTML: This is the original HTML coded to the site. It links to other resources, including the site’s CSS and JavaScript files.
  • Rendered HTML: This HTML contains the CSS, JavaScript, and other resources the initial HTML linked to. The rendered HTML is only visible after the initial HTML has been rendered.
