- Include a thorough description of the security assumptions, capabilities and any potential risks (possible attack points) being introduced by your project.
- How are transitions in/out of Private Browsing mode handled?
- Please provide a table of exported interfaces (APIs, ABIs, protocols, UI, etc.)
- Does it interoperate with a web service? How will it do so?
- Explain the significant file formats, names, syntax, and semantics.
