Firefox Launches the World's First Dedicated Virtual Reality Web Browser

Mozilla has just released Firefox Reality, the first dedicated VR web browser. The browser is free and available to download for Viveport, Oculus Go, and Google DayDream headsets. This is the first web browser intended to be used entirely in a VR headset. Andre Vrignaud, Head of Mixed Reality Platform Strategy at Mozilla, remarked “We had to rethink everything, including navigation, text-input, environments, search and more... The result is a browser that is built for the medium it serves.” Users will be able to visit both 2D and 3D websites, engage with Firefox Reality exclusive content, and search the web using the VR hand controller or their voice. It was very important to the Firefox Reality creators that voice controls should be an option, because text searches are still rather awkward in VR.
