Rust is the language we are all expecting to save us and it has just scored two more goals. The Chromium project has decided to support it and Mozilla, the original home of Rust, has a revitalized Servo project.

Rust making inroads into Linux is amazing in itself as Linus Torvalds has been a C fanatic for a very long time. As a result the only language to use for the Linux kernel was C, but now Rust is making its way in. Such modest, but important, gains are the sort of thing that sees a language thrust from the hands of the enthusiastic early adopters to the mainstream.

Now we have news that Rust has joined another "big" project - Chromium - the open source part of Chrome and Edge.
