The browser comes with some really cool stuff like Privacy Mode, Resize Mode, flexibility to move between 2D and 3D websites. You can download the browser for free currently it has released version 1.0 which is compatible with headsets like Google DayDream, Oculus Rift, and Viveport. The browser is optimized to work on the recently introduced headsets like the Oculus Go and Lenovo Mirage Solo.
Given the fact that it is the first version of the VR browser, there are many more issues to tackle as there are a large number of VR applications being developed
With a lot of VR content available and many more new applications being developed, Firefox Reality browser has many challenges to tackle in the near future. Though as of now VR application has got their first VR browser, it needs to work on the other issues as VR applications will need users to sign-up, download, and launch from the library.
The introduction of the VR browser is sure to get users to have an easier route to the development of content built for VR headsets that could run on WebVR. In future let’s hope to see content creators build content around Mozilla’s VR browser and developers build VR browser apps in the future.
