As promised, Mozilla has released the first Nightly build of Servo, its new browser engine. This is the first tech demo of Servo, which Jack Moffitt, Servo project lead at Mozilla, described to us in March as “a next-generation browser engine focused on performance and robustness.”
Packages for macOS and Linux are available to download from here: Servo Developer Preview Downloads. Mozilla promises that Windows and Android packages will be available “soon.” And because this is Mozilla, you can check out all the code yourself over on GitHub.
To make the Servo engine easy to interact with, Mozilla has bundled an HTML-based browser UI. It is not yet fully web compatible, but when you first run Servo, you’ll see a new tab page showcasing tech demos and sites that Servo renders well.
