This is huge news.
An experimental browser built in HTML.
browser.html is a platform research project closely related to Servo. It’s not a product. We are exploring future UI paradigms strictly only because we are curious what future needs will be on our platform and processes to build our platform, which we want to evolve.
Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority (CA), run for the public’s benefit. Let’s Encrypt is a service provided by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG).
The service is due to launch in summer 2015, but unless all browser vendors choose to include it as a trusted CA, it will be dead in the water. So far, I haven’t been able to find out if such an agreement has been made. Maybe they are using IdenTrust as a cross-signing partner.
“Bing is a new contender in the search space and while I personally think it’s making solid progress, our users are not asking for it in great numbers yet. But we reevaluate our search providers regularly and we are not precluded by any arrangements with other search providers from adding anything we believe our users want.”
Translation: we don’t want another search option because it will eat away at revenues generated from our partnership with Google.
