Last week I was visiting Fronteers 2013 conference in beautiful Tuschinsky cinema in Amsterdam. At the conference, Paul Lewis had a presentation on browser rendering performance. He showed a slide which contained an animation that showed how a browser calculates and paints the screen. Some people on twitter were wonderin how this animation was created. It appeared to be a modified Firefox build. The visualization of paint events cought my interest and I was curious if it was possible to catch Chrome paint events and animate them myself.
