    Servo was never supposed to be a browser. It was a testbed for new browser tech/components, some of which got ported into Firefox. I had hopes that Servo would also be an embeddable browser engine, but not sure if that was ever a serious goal.

    Servo still exists and has been spun out of Mozilla's org (https://github.com/servo/servo/). Certainly development will be slower without a dedicated, paid team behind it, but it's still alive (last merge to master was 9 days ago). And perhaps without Mozilla's direct control, it will actually end up becoming the browser you hoped it would be.

    Also Mozilla could have just decide to use their Servo engine to become something similar as it's already like a very trimmed version of the browser, but they just didn't do it and abandoned the project altogether after the latest restructuring.

    According to servo source repository on github, the project is moving fast and I didn’t see any slowdown.

    This is sort of what Servo is supposed to be (a re-implementation to create a web engine) and it still needs a ton of work after years.

    I agree with you about keeping compatibility, but there are absolutely features that, if removed from the web, would make implementation easier. Floats were specifically called out here as something that was difficult for servo to support.

    Servo was never meant to be a full engine replacement for mainline Firefox; whatever Rust code could be implemented/useful for Firefox was ported already.

    However, regarding Servo specifically, there are contributions on their GitHub[1] and the stewardship of the project is now under the Linux Foundation[2].

    Mozilla doesn't give a damn about embedding. https://github.com/servo/servo/discussions/28411

    I've opened a couple issues about it over the past few years and even joined the mailing list to see if there was some interest.

    Alas.

    The problem is that embedding servo is not that easy. This is the only info I found on it:

    https://github.com/paulrouget/servo-embedding-example

    And it is a 4-year old example.

    This, from the same author, is also abandoned: https://github.com/paulrouget/servo-embedding-api

    https://github.com/servo/servo/issues/18479

    I don't think that embedding is their focus at all, although it does sound like a killer feature to keep the project alive.
