Created by Mozilla Research in 2012, the Servo project is a Research & Development effort meant to create an independent, modular, embeddable web engine that allows developers to deliver content and applications using web standards. Servo is an experimental browser engine written in Rust, taking advantage of the memory safety properties and concurrency features of the language.
Stewardship of Servo moved from Mozilla Research to the Linux Foundation in 2020, where its mission remains
unchanged. After some slow years, there’s now renewed activity on the project, with a roadmap focused on
improving the engine’s CSS 2 conformance, exploring Android support, and making Servo a practical embeddable rendering engine.
Which brings the potential for Servo to be used inside other projects and frameworks inside Eclipse Foundation ecosystem like Oniro (https://oniroproject.org/).
In this presentation we’ll learn about Servo, the status of the project, the recent developments during 2023 and the plans for the future to become Servo an alternative as embeddable web rendering engine.
