HTC has collaborated with Mozilla to makes Firefox Reality the default browser for all its range of VR headsets. Now Vive users will be able to experience immersive web experiences via the Firefox Reality browsers homepage.
The recent developments are part of HTC plans to move into the XR or cross a reality. Cross reality is a term used to refer to hardware that combines virtual, mixed and augmented reality.
Michael Almeraris, vice president of HTC Vive said – “This year, Vive has set out to bring everyday computing tasks into VR for the first time. Through our exciting and innovative collaboration with Mozilla, we’re closing the gap in XR computing, empowering Vive users to get more content in their headset, while enabling developers to quickly create content for consumers.”
Firefox Reality browser was launched in September 2018 for Oculus and Daydream headsets. Ever since then there have been developments made and now it comes with support for 360-degree video from sources which include YouTube. It now also supports in seven extra languages.
Mozilla has been able to deliver a browser which can be used without the access of a keyboard and mouse or a touchscreen. This task is certainly not an easy one and Mozilla is still working on multi-window support and tabs.
Given the facts, HTC has gone ahead with its decision to work with Firefox Reality browser shows the confidence it has in the potential. It is going to be interesting how Mozilla is able to live up to the expectation during 2019.
If you own a Vive Wave headset, you can install the Firefox Reality from here.
