What is this FUD here?
Both Firefox and Chrome are great web browsers.
I use both, and both are very good browsers!
I use IE6 and it comes with great free smileys!!!!11
Also it loads gugle faster than evar with the booster 2000 ultimate toolbar!!!1
srsly guis, what is this heresy?!
The Cocoa API's do actually provide a lot of hardware acceleration though, much moreso than GTK or win32. So the fact that they get a lot of hardware acceleration for free on cocoa is still true. Adding that to the fact that using cocoa makes them a native very well integrated app makes it a win-win, hence why they aren't considering aura on osx.

No, I mean _everything_. What I forgot to mention was that Aura takes over the reigns from GTK 2 and literally draws everything itself. Aura becomes it's own toolkit and draws everything except the Window borders, which are handled by the Window Manager (though, Chrome manages to draw it's own titlebar & window buttons :P).

Unfortunately, there's not a lot of Docs on Servo yet, and any attempts to build it has been thwarted by the reliance on Autoconf 2.13 (I run Arch, so that's a problem) so I can't tell you all of the improvements... but I know there are many.
