web - Mozilla's Servo Engine Is Crazy Fast Compared To Gecko

The Servo layout engine is Mozilla's experimental project written in the Rust programming language and seeking for a high level of parallelism in the rendering and layout of web-pages. While there's not yet any firm plans to replace Gecko with Servo inside Firefox on the desktop, the new engine continues to be developed and was talked about a few weeks back at LinuxCon Europe 2014 in Germany.
For those wishing to embed the Servo Engine within their own applications for web rendering, Servo seeks to have a stable API/ABI, will be a C-based interface, considered "flexible" by its developers, and has already been largely designed.
