(*) Lua is the core programming language used to develop Sandcat extensions as well as portions of the browser itself.
(**) TIScript is the scripting engine used by Sandcat for some of its user interface operations. TIScript uses JavaScript as a base with some Python features added: classes and namespaces, properties, decorators, etc. See a JavaScript, Dart/Chrome and TIScript/Sciter comparison here
(***) Sciter is the engine used by Sandcat for rendering its user interface. Sciter (developed by Terra Informatica) supports TIScript execution and, in Sandcat, it can also execute Lua scripts and be manipulated from Lua scripts.
