Google has declared that its Chromium open-source browser project will accept third-party Rust libraries. Dana Jansens, a member of the Chrome security team, wrote a blog post on Thursday to make the announcement.

Jansens said in a statement that Google is currently working actively to integrate a production Rust toolchain into its build system. Memory safety issues account for about 70% of Chromium’s critical security flaws. Rust can be used to avoid memory safety problems when written properly.
