We imagine that having to take a virtual reality (VR) headset on and off can be a bit disruptive to the whole immersive experience thing. That’s why there are apps for VR that offer users the chance to do things that they would do normally on a computer, such as browse YouTube videos and surf the web.
If a new VR browser is something you might be interested in, then you’ll be pleased to learn that Mozilla has launched a VR browser of its own in the form of Firefox Reality. According to Mozilla, “We know a thing or two about making an amazing web browser. Firefox Reality is using our new Quantum engine for mobile browsers. The result is smooth and fast performance that is crucial for a VR browser.”
The company also touts how like Firefox for the desktop and mobile, Firefox Reality will also feature the same privacy protections. “We also take things like privacy and transparency very seriously. As a company, we are dedicated to fighting for your right to privacy on the web. Our values have guided us through this creation process, just as they do with every product we build.”
At the moment Firefox Reality is supported by the Oculus Rift, Google’s Daydream devices, and also for the HTC Vive.
