McrFRED 73 Andy Carter

For the next McrFRED, we will have Andy Carter joining us talking about optimising the history of the web browser.

For this McrFRED, we'll be at Code Computerlove on 'Wednesday 26th June, 2019'.

It can be a bit tricky to find the entrance, please watch this video to help:

Please arrive earlier rather than later, sometimes we do start a little later due to traffic, or other issues, but please assume that we'll start on time. There's normally some good conversation to by had as well.

This talk is due to start at 6:30pm and will last around 30mins, with time for questions and socialising afterwards.

The Dramatic History of the Web Browser

Microsoft announced at the end of 2018 that it was building a new browser based on Chromium. It will join an ever growing list of web browsers that are built on Google's open-source Chromium project. With Google Chrome's own share of the browser market continuing to grow does this mean Google have won the 'browser wars' and are comparisons with Microsoft's once dominant Internet Explorer fair? Now seems like a good time to re-examine the history of the web browser.

Starting with its humble beginnings amongst the international physics community we'll trace the browser’s journey through three decades of progress up to the present day. It's a story rife with competing corporations, lawsuits and surprise plot twists. Does history repeat itself and what could happen next to the web browser?
