      Mozilla has stated many times that Servo is pretty much never going to replace Gecko in the Firefox browser. It is a "research project" as to how they could improve Gecko. That being said, there is, of course, much interest in 3rd parties making browsers out of Servo. Or even replacing Chromium in other browsers (since Servo is going to use the Chromium Embedding API)

      Never (see above). But that's Servo itself. There is work undergoing to use libraries Servo uses (URL Parser, image decoder, etc) in Firefox, as the Servo libraries are faster (or at least the same speed), easier to read/write, and safer (obviously).

      As for GTK+3, there are working builds for it (at least for Fedora Rawhide). They're not switching to it because there are a few critical bugs left.
      Meta bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=627699
      Lots of crossed out bugs

        Rust's Hello World example generates on Linux a 564KB executable, I wonder why?
        C/C++ is about 10KB.

            I don't know. They seem to be working on getting it production ready. So i kind of believe we will see a product based on it. If it is another (new) Browser that will replace FF i am all for it.

              So what can I code with it beside Hello World? Is there a boost functionality? MPI? Sparse matrix libraries?

                Hello World in Go is even 1.9 MB or 1.4 MB if you strip the binary with "strip -s". It statically links the runtime into it.

                However there is also "gccgo". If you compile it with that the binary is 24kb or 18kb stripped.
