If in the middle of playing a VR game on Oculus Rift, you ever wanted to check your favorite websites for latest articles and wished for a good web browser that could work within Oculus Rift, then Mozila has listened to you. Mozilla has taken Firefox web browser into a new realm – now they have created a web browser to be used from within virtual reality devices such as Oculus Rift, HTC Vive or Google Daydream. Who needs a computer screen when you can browse any number of websites through your extremely powerful virtual reality rigs.
The new VR web browser from Mozilla is called Firefox Reality and it works on all the three popular virtual reality systems – Oculus Rift, HTC Vive or Google Daydream. Perhaps Mozilla will add support for more VR systems like Samsung Gear VR and Sony Playstation VR in the future versions.
As you can expect, you do not need any input device for working with the Firefox Reality web browser which you are using while wearing your VR headsets. It understands your voice and you can control everything by giving voice commands. If however, you do have to type something – there is a virtual keyboard that you can control using a virtual stick.
Quantum is the most recent mega update to the Firefox web browser. It has improved both the stability and web data processing speed in the popular web browser both for the desktop versions and the mobile browsers. Firefox Reality uses the same Quantum engine that is being used for Firefox for Android and this is why it is very reliable, fast and smooth.
Mozilla promises that they are just getting started and there is much more in the future of this VR web browser. They are going to make it smarter and faster. With Firefox Reality, Mozilla has unlocked a new dimension into the future of the web itself.
