News: Experience Virtual Reality With Firefox 55

The internet is about to get a lot more VR-friendly: Mozilla’s Firefox 55, rolling out now, supports WebVR, which lets you experience VR content on the web with an HTC Vive or Oculus Rift headset.

“WebVR enables developers and artists to create web-based VR experiences you can browse to with Firefox,” Mozilla product strategist Nick Nguyen writes in a blog post.

“Whether you’re a current Oculus Rift or HTC Vive owner—or still deciding when you’re going to take the VR leap—Firefox can get you to your VR fix faster.

“When you find a game or app on the web that supports VR, just click the VR goggles icon on the page to experience it with your headset. You can use handset controllers, and move around in your physical space, to navigate and control these web-based VR experiences.
