Mozilla has announced it has taken a small step towards replacing much of Firefox's C++ code with its safer alternative language, Rust.
When Firefox 48 ships on August 2, it will contain a Rust-built mp4 track metadata parser that will be available on Windows and 32-bit Linux desktops for the first time. Users of Mac OS X and 64-bit Linux have had the new parser available since Firefox 45.
