      I don't understand where Servo is going. It is unusable in its current state compared to Chrome/Edge/Firefox/Opera/etc. I tested it shortly a few weeks ago, a few months ago, a year ago: it seems to be stagnating or is improving extremely slowly.

        Servo is not a component of Firefox. Servo is an independent experimental browser. After specific pieces of servo gets mature, those components gets merged into Firefox.

        Servo is not meant to be used on its own by end users. It's just a providing ground for some things that Firefox developers are trying out. Some of this will get merged into Firefox over time as has been happening already through the Firefox Quantum effort.

          It's an experiment. I don't think it's meant to be usable, the idea is to try random stuff and see what works and what doesn't.

            Useable parts of Servo get brought over to Gecko. Servo is more of a testbed for new browser technology.

              Wow, we made 22 posts without someone trolling Rust. Amazing.

              Right. I don't know if it's up to date, but the Mozilla Wiki has a page on Rust components brought over into Firefox and those in progress: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Oxidation

                Exactly... Servo isn't a browser, it's a place for prototyping things without the overhead of working with the full Mozilla codebase... minimal UI, few features, just a basic shell around a rendering engine.

                  As already mentioned, it seems like the video accel was just rendering the frames in an opengl context. That's a far cry from "video acceleration".

                  Firefox will be useless for viewing youtube on your laptop for the foreseeable future still.

                    I recently switched to Firefox on Android and it's very fast for me.
