    Interesting. I wonder if Firefox add-ons will work with it eventually.

      Nightly builds don't work in Fedora (openssl library is too new)

        The next generation WebExtension ones I expect to, eventually. Probably not the current ones.

          Modify runservo.sh and remove "-b" from the arguments, it should work then. It's just complaining about a lack of symbols, those aren't fatal errors.

            Or you can do what I did, git clone the repository and do a ./mach build --release then cd target/release, then you can use the same runservo.sh script in the nightly build.

            It does take a while to build, and about 5 GB of disk space.

              i doubt it, Addons will be similar to Chrome's/Safari for Servo Browser. so a lot of them will be Limited in what they can do

                As they are currently, with xul... no.
                They will likely port web extensions from Firefox proper, part of the reason for the move to it was servo and narrowing security issues involved with kepting xul alive.

                By the time that servo is in production use.... I am no so sure that will app

                    Yeah, it's a shame. But at least it looks like they're working on it in the form of a FlatPak for fedora users.
