Firefox gets new version update with virtual reality
by Geekboots | Tue, 03 Apr 2018
Mozilla rolls out a new version for FireFox browser with virtual reality. The new version is called Firefox Reality. it’s not available publicly yet. It only shows on the HTC Vive Focus as a demo version and Mozilla hasn’t specified which headsets will support it.
Mozilla said - “Mixed reality is the wild west. How do you type? How do you express emotion? How do you view the billions of existing 2D web pages as well as new 3D content? How do you communicate? Who maps the world and who controls what you see? Can we build on our work with voice recognition and connected devices to create a better browsing experience? We love tackling these questions. Everything is new again, and we are constantly building and experimenting to find the right answers.”
Firefox Reality is also supposed to reflect performance advances that Firefox made with its speedy Quantum browser. VR browsers generally provide 2D web pages, but all are not good. Mozilla with Firefox Reality is giving VR a vote of confidence, and potentially bringing some openness to a series of relatively walled-off and device-specific VR platforms.
