luakit is a highly configurable, micro-browser framework based on the WebKit web content engine and the GTK+ toolkit. It is very fast, extensible by Lua and licensed under the GNU GPLv3 license.
It is primarily targeted at power users, developers and any people with too much time on their hands who want to have fine-grained control over their web browsers behaviour and interface.
luakit could equally be known as "browser from scratch" as the entire interface is created by the users rc.lua configuration file.
The default rc.lua aims to create a familiar browsing experience to other micro-browsers like jumanji, uzbl, surf and the bloated vimperator and vrome plugins for firefox and chromium.
