WebKitGTK+. Why are you looking to replace it?

Well, I'm curious why you see Chromium Embedded Framework as a 
strength. I don't doubt it's great for many purposes, but for GNOME? 
With WebKit, Apple has been a fairly good partner, accommodating us to 
make sure we can do the things we want to do at every level of their 
stack. That will never be permitted with Chromium/Blink.

Anyway, servo is extremely interesting simply because it's written in 
Rust, and hopefully that means a huge security benefit. But it's a 
research project in the very early stages of development. We should 
keep an eye on it, for sure.
