There are some huge announcements this week affecting the plumbing of Internet browsers from leading players, including Mozilla and Google. Mozilla and Samsung have announced that they are collaborating on an advanced technology Web browser engine called Servo. Servo is "an attempt to rebuild the Web browser from the ground up on modern hardware, rethinking old assumptions along the way," according to Mozilla's post.

Meanwhile, Google is out with Chrome 28, the first solid version of the browser to use the company's self-built "Blink" rendering engine. Users can download Chrome 28 from Google's site, and if you already use Chrome, the automatic updater will retrieve the new version. Opera is also upgrading to using the Blink rendering engine.
