Metasploit: What actually happens when a user clicks on a URL? [Victor Mehra]

Posted by Stephanie Coyle about a month ago

How does a browser exploit actually work, from the point of a user clicking on a link to the point where shell code execution takes place? Does anyone have a detailed description on what is happening during this process?

I would like to learn more than what is outlined in smashing the stack article here: https://blog.rapid7.com/2012/07/06/stack-smashing-when-code-execution-becomes-a-nightmare/

Specifically, I want to know the surrounding material and how I can fill in the blanks with as much additional information as possible.
