- Firefox Reality on Steam VR starting this summer
Firefox has been working for months on a web browser for virtual reality. Already available on various platforms, Firefox Reality should land on Steam VR this summer.
The Mozilla Foundation provides a free open source web browser. For this, the foundation works with thousands of volunteers using open source methods of free software. The foundation, whose browser is considered one of the best in the world, does not want to let the virtual reality train pass and has therefore developed a version adapted to VR. It should land on Steam VR this summer.
Firefox Reality on Steam VR starting this summer
Mozilla Foundation has revealed that it is working with Valve to deploy its dedicated virtual reality browser, Firefox Reality, this summer. The VR web browser is already available through a number of platforms but not on Steam VR, the major portal for virtual reality. Concretely, you will install it via a new web dashboard button and you'll be able to browse the pages in a window that hovers above "any OpenVR experience".
In other words, you can check out a walkthrough to find a VR compatible Steam game, whether you use an HTC Vive, an Oculus Rift headset or the future Valve Index. Soon, you will be able to visit Steam VR to add Firefox Reality to your wishlist (the link is not yet available) and thus be notified when it is released. Virtual reality web browsing is still in its infancy, and this Firefox-signed browser could make it easier. This is also good news for players who want a major browser without having to change environment nor to further disrupt their experience more than necessary.
