    "Punts" is correct here.

        "Punts" is correct here. The connotation is that it's a cop-out move on Mozilla's part.

          Let's be honest here, Servo was supposed the new heart of Firefox. Who in their right mind announces they just ripped their heart out and donated it for safe-keeping?

              Servo was Mozilla's future. They needed that tech to avoid losing users long term. Nobody will compare browsers and choose the one which is much slower and less responsive. :facepalm:

                Thats as simple as it can be: The web is replaced every few years.

                  Firefox works just great for me. I have no interest in changing what so ever.

                    Why would the Linux foundation even want a web engine?

                      Firefox's core has never been replaced.
