AngleSharp with Florian Rappl

There are a few good HTML & CSS parsing libraries out there, but AngleSharp definitely stands out among them by giving .NET developers all the same possibilities of modern browsers using JavaScript. In this fifth episode of GeekFest, Florian Rappl takes us through what AngleSharp actually is and why it is not "just another head-less browser". He briefly outlines some impressive performance metrics of this portable class library and takes us through some cool features like built-in CSS parsing and DOM querying.

Although the library hasn't reached it's official 1.0 release yet, it's fully extendable from the get-go and the project is already inviting pull-requests on GitHub. You can also grab it from Nuget.
