Mozilla has recently announced that it is building a browser designed especially for displaying virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) content.
"We believe that the future of the web will be heavily intertwined with virtual and augmented reality, and that future will live through browsers," wrote Sean White, Mozilla's chief research and development officer, in a company blog.
Although this is not the first VR browser, it is the first cross-platform browser for mixed reality. Other solutions for browsing and accessing the web on stand-alone headsets exist, but they are closed, and platform specific. Firefox Reality will be independent and will work on a wide variety of devices and platforms.
White didn't specify when Firefox Reality is going to be available to consumers. White promised support across a wide variety of devices, and a Mozilla spokesperson added that the browser will be available on the HTC Vive Focus and other headsets supported by HTC's Vive Wave VR platform at launch, with developer support being added for other Qualcomm-based devices, including Daydream and Gear VR. The team is also working on an implementation for ODG's AR glasses, and is part of Magic Leap's early access program.
