New browser being developed by Samsung and Mozilla
This crazy world that we live in needs a number of new things, but a new browser is not one of them. That makes it seem strange that Mozilla and Samsung are teaming up to build a new browser that is being called Servo. The browser is being built from the bottom up using Rust, Mozilla's code language that at version .6, is in its early days. According to Mozilla, the pair wants to take advantage of the coming "faster, multi-core, heterogeneous computing architectures."

Both companies have decided to put resources into the project although there is no target date for having the software available. With Samsung's help, Mozilla wants to bring the Servo browser to Android and ARM. Thus far, the Korean tech titan has provided an ARM backend to Rust as well as the build infrastructure needed for Mozilla to cross-compile to Android.

Mozilla is currently working on getting Firefox OS out and Samsung continues to flex its muscles in front of Google to let the Mountain View based tech titan know that the Korean OEM is not a Google hand puppet playing in the Android Theater. It is the same reason why Samsung is keeping Tizen around, to let Google know who really is responsible for Android's success and to make Google concerned that at anytime, Samsung could take its ball back and go home.
