Using Servo in Electron


I recently found out about Servo, the new browser engine from Mozilla written in Rust which is coming to Firefox soon.

The big advantage is that its rendering performance is many times superior to other browsers.

Is the Electron team aware of Servo?

Do you think it’s even remotely possible to consider replacing Chrome for Servo in future releases of Electron, or even giving the option of which one to use?


Yes, we’re aware of it :grinning:

We don’t have any plans for this kind of thing, no. Electron uses more than simply the rendering engine of Chromium, so this kind of effort would be very expensive to even prove that it would work, let alone maintain.
