Samsung & Mozilla to develop Next-Gen browser called Servo

Samsung and Mozilla announced on Wednesday to team up for the future of Web Browsing. Firefox maker is collaborating with Samsung to build a next generation web browser called Servo.

The ultimate goal is to bring the technology to ARM and Android devices. The new web engine will take advantage of “tomorrow’s faster, multi-core” computing architectures, casting aside “old assumptions” about how a browser engine should work.

The move is basically Mozilla’s way of thinking ahead. CTO of Mozilla, Brendan Eich wrote in his blog “We need to be prepared to take advantage of tomorrow’s faster, multi-core, heterogeneous computing architectures.”

Servo is written in Rust, a new language developed by Mozilla and its community.

Rather than designing a mobile web browser to challenge Google’s Chrome — although that could be the end game here — Servo appears to be more of a challenge to Web-Kit, the browser engine used by Apple and Google in their browsers.

Mozilla is encouraging developers to get involved with Rust and help improve the language, and says that it’s looking with Samsung at more “opportunities on mobile platforms.”
