Mozilla’s powerful VR browser is finally available for the Oculus Quest.
Firefox Reality is a VR-based web browser capable of delivering immersive 3D VR experiences as well as standard 2D web-based content on various VR, AR, and MR headsets, such as HTC’s Vive Focus Plus, the Lenovo Mirage, and the Oculus Rift S, thanks to Mozilla’s quantum engine for mobile browsers.
Today, Mozilla has announced that now Oculus Quest users will be able to get in on the WebVR action as well.
Yes, Mozilla’s Firefox Reality MR browser has officially arrived on the 6DOF VR headset alongside a plethora of much-needed updates that make your VR web browsing experience even more enjoyable.
First off, the MR browser is accessible in 10 different languages, including Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese, with more languages on the way. You’re also able to search the web using your voice as opposed to typing, which makes browsing feel faster and more intuitive.
Mozilla has also pumped up their VR web browser with an additional layer of protection against pervasive tracking and the collection of personal data by ad networks and tech companies. Mozilla strongly believes that privacy shouldn’t be relegated to optional settings, which is why Firefox Reality’s Enhanced Tracking Protection is enabled by default.
All of these protective settings are designed to work in the background, which means you’re guaranteed a safe and secure browsing session at no cost to speed or performance. Whether you’re watching immersive VR video or hanging out with your friends in Mozilla Hubs, your web experience will be fast and you won’t have to worry about handing over data.
Over the coming months, Mozilla plans on rolling out additional support for the nearly VR-ready WebXR specification, multi-window browsing, bookmarks sync, additional language support, along with other exciting new features that will soon be available.
Like all Firefox browser products, Firefox Reality is available for free. For more information, head on over to www.mixedreality.mozilla.org/firefox-reality.
