Mozilla today took the wraps off of Firefox Reality, a new version of the popular browser built for VR and augmented reality (AR) headsets. The browser will be available across a variety of platforms and, in Mozilla tradition, is completely open source.
We believe that the future of the web will be heavily intertwined with virtual and augmented reality, and that future will live through browsers. That's why we're building Firefox Reality, a new kind of web browser that has been designed from the ground up to work on stand-alone virtual and augmented reality (or mixed reality) headsets.
Currently, Firefox Reality looks very much like a simple browser window floating in virtual space, but with larger UI elements. But Mozilla is just starting on its journey with Firefox Reality. The company is using the browser as a platform to figure out the best ways to interact with web pages in a mixed reality setting. For now, you can get a look at Firefox Reality as it currently stands in the video demo below:
Firefox Reality complements work Mozilla has already done in bringing support for WebVR in the standard Firefox browser. For now, Firefox Reality is "engineered specifically for the next generation of standalone VR and AR headsets," Mozilla says. At least initially, the source code will also run in developer mode on Daydream and GearVR devices as well.
