Technology from the past come to save the future from itself
I have been writing a compiled, concurrent, safe, systems programming language for the past four and a half years.
Spare-time kinda thing. Yeah, I got problems.
A small group of people in Mozilla got interested in it this past year, once I told them what I was up to.
We’ve been trying to finish it for the past few months, to see what we can make of it.
There is no master plan, nefarious plot, etc.
You are not going to be forced to use it.
We are not “rewriting the browser”. That’s impossible. Put down the gun.
We do not know what exactly will come of it.
It was a coincidence of a maturing side project and a desire for some slightly less-annoying language technology, nothing crazy…
