Netrunner

is an implementation of a new web browser engine written in C++ utilizing OpenGL.

Status: You can give it a url and it’ll download, parse, and render the text from the page

Odilitime’s vision

A modern web browser is a huge project. I’d like to see this broken into several composable pieces. Network engine separate from the parsing engine, separate from the compositing engine separate from the renderer. This way it could be used a document viewer or an editor as well. A browser development kit for developers. I’d like to develop text-based structures for communication between each piece.

FAQ

  • Why don’t you use x engine? Because it didn’t do what we wanted it to do.
  • You realize this project is a massive undertaking Yes.
  • Why are you doing this? odilitime: To watch people get triggered on /g/
  • This code is awful? Yes, we’re planning to throw it away. It’s just a proof-of-concept at the moment.
  • How can I help? Join IRC, compile the code, figure out something you want to improve
  • What about security? I don’t think one on here could ever say they know what their doing without being laughed off the board. Security is a huge challenge to any project. We’re going to do the best with the resources we have.
