Google today said it is allowing Rust code into the Chromium codebase. Google introduced the Rust toolchain in the process of building the Chromium version and allowed Chrome / Chromium to use the Rust library.
After gradually embracing Rust code, Google says it will fully support the Rust programming language next year. Google’s introduction of Rust for Chromium will make the open source browser simpler and more secure than C++, especially in terms of avoiding memory security vulnerabilities.
Rust is a general-purpose, compiled programming language developed under the direction of Mozilla. The Rust language was originally a private project of Mozilla employee Graydon Hoare, who sponsored the project in 2009 and made it publicly available for the first time in 2010.
