The Mozilla Foundation is working with the South Korean company Samsung in creating Servo, a new generation browser which they started beginning work as a research project in 2012.
This new browser is still far from being available to be sold, is has been designed and developed by Mozilla, the organization announced in a statement. Thus, both companies intend to carry Servo Rust and Android
and ARM architecture, designed for the creation of processors and especially useful for developing a tablet.
Samsung is interested in the project because the company "is investigating several new technologies to innovate in products that are part of the legacy. This collaboration will bring an opportunity to open a new era in web
experience in the future," a spokesman at TechCrunch was quoted as saying.
Co-founder and CTO of Mozilla, Brendan Eich, argues that Servo is an attempt to reshape the browser with hardware modern correcting "weak points in security" and proposing a "new and richer"
experience on the web.
Rust Mozilla has worked for several years, said the company. The team now has version 0.6 and is "rapidly reaching stability," said Eich.
The announcement comes a day after Mozilla launched Firefox 20, the new version of its classic browser, including the ability to open a private browsing window without terminating or interrupting the current session.
