    Phoronix: Mozilla's Servo Is Now Rendering Phoronix, Except For One Big Bug

    After this morning's article about Mozilla's Servo Engine Now Capable Of Rendering GitHub Near Flawlessly, a Mozilla Research developer shared that this next-generation, Rust-written layout engine is also capable of rendering Phoronix.com...

    Of course, the bigger issue is that the web advertisements aren't correctly rendered with Servo!
    Sounds like a feature.

      I'm sure they'll get there. The engine doesn't yet handle rendering/layout correctly. It's no surprise that there may be problems with cross-domain requests or other issues in the rendering engine.

        Is there a feature for paying members to filter out the reminderblurp, or indeed people who specifically enable ads on phoronix?...

          Kind of curious why these Ads aren't shown in Servo?
          Because they're Flash one?

          If so, would you consider disable Flash based ones?
          Especially the days of Flash goes down quick with its security reputation.

          And as always, I explicitly white list Phoronix.com in uBlock.

            I suspect that's it. Even without ad blockers, I don't see any ads on the Phoronix home page - but I do see a lot of "Click here to activate the Adobe Flash plugin" placeholder boxes. Not a very effective form of advertising, if it can't be seen by someone running a stock Firefox installation...

              I'm sure Servo doesn't support Flash, given how many complications that has made for other browsers and how it's dying out. It'd be a waste of effort to add support in an experimental browser.

                It should fallback to non-flash ads in that case.... Hmmm, any other ad/JS plug-ins you use?

                  Interesting I don't see those on my iPad, plenty of useless ads without flash! 😆😆😆😆😆😆. I haven't checked Phornix recently on my Mac but that is running ad blockers.

                    Well, to quote Patrick Walton, "Not implementing document.write makes a surprisingly effective and targeted ad blocker."
