Mozilla has reported another version of its Firefox program for standalone virtual and augmented reality headsets. Known as Firefox Reality, the new open source web browser that has been planned starting from the earliest stage to deal with stand-alone virtual and augmented reality (or mixed reality) headsets.
“It’s our mission to ensure that the Internet is an open and accessible resource that puts people first. Currently, the world can browse the open web using our fast and privacy-focused Firefox browser, but continuing that mission in a rapidly changing world means constantly investing our time and resources into new and emerging technologies – and realities”. Sean White Mentioned In the Post.
Much the same as the typical Firefox, the open source web browser Firefox Reality is intended to work crosswise over various platforms as opposed to restricting it to maybe a couple headsets. You can see an early demo of it taking a shot at the HTC Vive Focus, yet it’s not accessible openly yet, and Mozilla hasn’t indicated which headsets will bolster it. The group is likewise chipping away at a usage for ODG’s AR glasses, and is a piece of Magic Leap’s initial access program.
Mozilla said that they’ve built the Firefox Reality without any preparation and endeavored to bring the program from their times of involvement and the innovation they had put into Firefox Quantum. While they aren’t completely mindful of the security ramifications of blended reality, privacy is one of the prime central focuses amid the improvement.
Firefox was the principal program to execute WebVR – an open standard for sharing and getting a charge out of virtual reality content through a web URL. This lays the preparation for making and conveying immersive encounters utilizing a technique that is as basic as opening a site page. With Firefox Reality, Mozilla is giving VR a vote of certainty, and possibly conveying some receptiveness to a progression of generally walled off and gadget particular VR platforms.
