Mozilla’s experimental browser engine project Servo will be a reality in June when the company will release its first Alpha. With a focus on security, performance, parallelism and modularity, Servo is built from the scratch using Rust programming language.
Servo has been built from scratch using Mozilla’s homegrown programming language Rust. Designed to be more modular, Servo comes with an option to only install the elements that you need, making it more secure and faster than C++ — a language that’s poorly suited to solve the problems like memory leaks and bug, according to Mozilla. It has been designed to treat tasks like HTML parsing, rendering etc. as separate jobs.
It’s being actively developed for Linux, OS X, Android, and Firefox OS. However, Mozilla hasn’t revealed any official date for the official release of the browser. The team is pushing the first Alpha release in June to gain feedback from the developers and make it better.
