From a technological point of view I find this very impressive. Interesting first use experience, explaining how it works. Uses Chromium as its rendering engine. Tagline should be A browser from the HTML5 era though, I think.
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.
Written in Rust. No mention of what will happend to Gecko whatsoever in the announcement
Google just announced it’ll fork Webkit for use with Chrome/Chromium as it has become too difficult to add features to it as Chrome uses quite a different multi-process architecture than other WebKit-based browsers:
When Chromium started, our goal was to change as little of WebKit as possible, easing integration with the WebKit codebase. With Blink we are excited to make large-scale architectural changes to the code, without having to worry about breaking other consumers of WebKit.
Record modes let you record every request Chrome makes. Playback mode serves requests out of that recorded cache just as if they were being loaded on the spot. It doesn’t record where you click or what you open: everything will be served out of the recorded cache, even if your servers have exploded, a bug has been deployed, or the conference wifi has dropped out.
Whenever you find yourself with too many tabs, click the OneTab icon to convert all of your tabs into a list. When you need to access the tabs again, you can either restore them individually or all at once.
Might be a good alternative when having about 100 tabs open and having to switch to an other profile/browser/build to keep things speedy …
