+Kore (https://kore.io) is a fast webserver written in C for web applications
+developed in C. It provides a small set of API functions you can use to build
+a dynamic library which is loaded into Kore directly.
-Kore is a fast webserver that facilitates creating dynamic websites in the
-C programming language. It takes away the bottleneck of constantly loading
-items from disk or executing non compiled code (PHP, Perl, ...).
-Kore provides you with a set of API functions you can use to build your site
-which is then loaded into the webserver as a loadable C module. Because of
-this pages are mapped to functions that are directly called from the worker
-processes allowing for the potential of great speed.
-As little overhead as possible.
+Kore is an ideal candidate for developing robust, fast and safe web applications.
