Mixed reality is the Wild West. There can be many examples like, how do you type? How do you express emotions? How do you view the billions of existing 2D web pages as well as new 3D content? How do you communicate? Who maps the world and who controls what you see? Can we build on our work with voice recognition and connected devices to create a better browsing experience? Everything is new again, and Mozilla is constantly building and experimenting to find the right answers.
Browsers are the future of mixed reality.
Firefox is the first browser to create WebVR and provides an open standard to sharing and enjoy virtual reality content via a web URL. Basically, it works for creating and delivering immersive experiences using a method that is as simple as opening a web page.
