In today's fast-paced development world, HTML5 is an emerging technology which allows for rapid, agile development with a high degree of portability. Many platforms, including Android, are incorporating HTML5 runtimes, which are essentially browser engines, as an alternative to native development. Currently, anyone wishing to embed HTML5 into their application has a very limited number of choices for a browser engine: the Apple-managed Webkit and the Google-managed Blink are the only options. There is a project which aims to create another viable option. Having begun several years ago, the Open Source Servo browser engine is written in the Rust language and is a joint research project with both Mozilla and Samsung invested. This presentation will give some background on Rust, the reasons behind Servo and its architecture, and how to use it as your HTML5 embedding engine.
