### Different versions
The editable options should make it easy to offer our users two versions of this
browser engine.
One version should contain advanced and pretty extreme privacy options.
The other version should offer options which would work for the average user.
That version also contains strong privacy options but options that should not
bother the browsing experience of the user.

I personally would like to use a LISP dialect but the language isn't decided yet.
The nature of LISP should make the browser engine easy extendable.
[Steel Bank Common Lisp (SBCL)](http://www.sbcl.org/index.html) is the first dialect that I will try.
SBCL compiles to machine code and this is important for a browser engine.
## TODO's
- [ ] Write a [toy render engine](https://limpet.net/mbrubeck/2014/08/08/toy-layout-engine-1.html)
- [ ] ...
## Notes and ideas
- It might be cool to add vi and emacs bindings
- ~~[Next Web Browser](https://github.com/atlas-engineer/next) might use it's own browser engine.
It might be better to improve that project.
They used WebKitGTK+ so this can't be a starting point.~~
## Project status
Project idea.
Project idea
## Project license
I am currently thinking of the LGPL license.
I would like to use a license of the free software foundation.
## Inspiration
I saw people complaining about browsers and
I often hear that there isn't enough competition in the browser market.
[Next Web Browser](https://github.com/atlas-engineer/next) looks like a
great project.
It is a browser so not a browser engine but it might be better to extend that
project.
I would like to use a license of the free software foundation.
