I dont know, maybe it's a wrapper for querySelectorAll. depends on how browser-makers implemented it.

— It doesnt matter if you dont do any engine or lib..

— A node list is static a htmlcollection is live. I'm pretty sure querySelector should be faster

— What is callback. Fonction ??

— A callback is a function you pass as a parameter to another function which will call your callback function after it's done

— Or after some condition

— But why do that ?

— Why i need to pass a fonction like a parameter for other function ??

— For asynchronous functions where you don't control when the function is done, you can pass the callback, and it will be called when it's done

— 

asyncFunction(param1, param2, callback)
// someOtherStuff...


asyncFunction is called, but you don't wait for it to complete. someOtherStuff continues to happen, and whenever asyncFunction is done running, it will call callback which is also a function
