Mozilla and Samsung have partnered to create a web browser engine specially designed for multi-core processors.
The two firms will jointly work together to build out a web browser engine known as Servo. Mozilla says the engine will look to take advantage of future multi-core computer architectures.
"Servo is an attempt to rebuild the web browser from the ground up on modern hardware, rethinking old assumptions along the way," wrote Mozilla chief technology officer Brendan Eich in a blog post.
"This means addressing the causes of security vulnerabilities while designing a platform that can fully utilise the performance of tomorrow's massively parallel hardware to enable new and richer experiences on the web."
Servo will be based on the Rust programming language, which Mozilla believes is a safer alternative to C++. The company wants Rust to be a better fortified programming language that will be able to take advantage of future technology hardware.
The most recent versions of Rust and Servo now feature contributions from Samsung. Both firms collaborated to bring the technology to Android and ARM. Mozilla reports that Samsung contributed an ARM back end to Rust and the infrastructure needed to cross-compile to the Android OS.
Samsung has recently been making many forays into the further advancement of mobile software. In 2011, the Galaxy Note maker began work on its own mobile OS called Tizen. Samsung is currently co-developing the platform with help from Intel.
For Mozilla, the partnership continues the firm's growth over the past couple of years. Last month, the company made waves when it demoed its upcoming mobile OS at this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC). At the conference Mozilla showed off its Firefox OS on the Dreamfone.
