Lightweight JavaScript-free browser engine written in Haskell

In the pursuit of turning a document publishing system into an application delivery platform modern web browsers have become incredibly complex. Thus frustrating efforts to adapt and modify browsers to people's individual needs, including privacy and accessibility needs. Haphaestus aims to illustrate the potential of a more private JavaScript-free web to provide an optimal experience for any conceivable device, by building upon the dev's previous auditory web browser to prototype one that can conveniently navigate most (but the most popular) sites using a TV remote.

Haphaestus will strive to deliver a working independent web browser requiring minimal TV remote button presses, as well as reusable software components for laying out, rendering, & paginating richtext documents written in a range of alphabets.
