    Interesting to see where Rust is at. I've been watching it for a while without going into depth and this was exactly what I needed to suck me in. Nice job Dave, and nice job Rust team!

    Its kind of funny to see a programming language built for pretty much the purpose of making a browser, but when you think how big browsers have gotten, it makes sense.

    I agree. This was a good overview. I'm sure Rust is intended to be more than building a browser; it could be a bare-metal language to build firefox O/S, for example.
