font-rs is a font renderer written in Rust: https://github.com/google/font-rs It's supposed to be quite a bit faster than freetype, but is still a prototype right now. The author wrote a blog post about it here: https://medium.com/@raphlinus/inside-the-fastest-font-renderer-in-the-world-75ae5270c445#.haxxfzrop
font-rs doesn't support postscript outlines, sub-pixel aa, or hinting. I think we should probably wait for servo to switch to this before trying it.
