Servo: Nuovo Browser in Collaborazione Tra Mozilla E Samsung

by admin Date: 11-04-2013


Il 3 Marzo Mozilla ha annunciato la nascita di un nuovo progetto, in collaborazione con Samsung, atto a realizzare un nuovo Web Browser, nome in codice Servo, dedicato ai processori multi-core, ARM e ai dispositivi mobile.

Mozilla dichiara:

Servo is an attempt to rebuild the Web browser from the ground up on modern hardware, rethinking old assumptions along the way. This means addressing the causes of security vulnerabilities while designing a platform that can fully utilize the performance of tomorrow’s massively parallel hardware to enable new and richer experiences on the Web. To those ends, Servo is written in Rust, a new, safe systems language developed by Mozilla along with a growing community of enthusiasts.

Continua parlando un po’ di Rust, il nuovo linguaggio di programmazione:

Rust, which today reached v0.6, has been in development for several years and is rapidly approaching stability. It is intended to fill many of the same niches that C++ has over the past decades, with efficient high-level, multi-paradigm abstractions, and offers precise control over hardware resources. Rust also features lightweight concurrency primitives that make it easy for programmers to leverage the power of the many CPU cores available on current and future computing platforms.

Con Servo Mozilla vuole creare un Browser Web veloce, leggero e next-gen. Si prospetta nei prossimi anni una vera battaglia tra Google e Mozilla per il dominio su Android. Vedremo come evolverà questo progetto e questa collaborazione molto interessante.

Voi cosa ne pensate di questo progetto?
