James Mickens calls it Project Atlantis. Make the web/content
developers responsible for their own rendering and content parsing.
Narrow & simplify the scope of what a browser needs to be (shouldn't
duplicate all the functions of an OS). His Deny First Same Origin
Policy is also a worthy change to current standards. This coupled
with some of the concepts from Seif [0] (though not the current code
base, I disagree with the choice of nodejs & Qt), could make web
browsing . . . better, safer, more performant.

Interesting things to consider with some of the suckless ethos.
