Worth noting, since Servo’s speed has often been mentioned: very little work has gone into optimizing the network stack. So I noticed when playing around with this that often, the page load was very slow, but then using things on the page after was super fast.
Also, into input controls. When trying to log in to write this post, hitting <tab> ended up submitting the form. Text editing controls and line wrap in this field alspoo don’t work properly.
And into being able to enter text into the address bar apparently? Any suggestion is immediately selected, and my cursor keeps jumping left while typing.

Wow! I’m amazed it rendered so well! I tried running it over a year ago and it was incredibly unusable. My personal website rendered as a giant black page that flashed orange once in a while. That’s an incredible amount of progress.
This is a great project. I’ve just tried this early build and it looks they have been making good progress, some of the pages I used to test rendered a blank page but most of them opened fine without major issues.
