Next Version Of Firefox Will Bring VR Support
09 August 2017, 05:05 | Rudolph Thomas
Firefox 55 Arrives Tomorrow With VR Support For Oculus Rift And HTC Vive
When coupled with WebGL to render 3D graphics, these APIs transform the browser into a platform that allows VR content to be published to the Web and instantaneously consumed from any capable VR device.
Alongside WebVR support, the latest Firefoxupdate will be bringing a number of improvements including a performance panel that allow users the ability to set preferences in how many processes they're running and a pipeline for restoring lots of tabs in a jiffy.
Of course, Mozilla doesn't produce its own VR hardware, so the WebVR element of its browser should be more open, with the company citing the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive as the headsets that will benefit most from the update. Comparatively, Chrome's VR supports the HTC Vive, Google's Cardboard and Daydream, and Oculus Rift.
Mozilla developers, including Vladimir Vukicevic in 2014, created the concept for WebVR. Support was added to competing browsers such as Microsoft Edge and Chromium/Google Chrome earlier this year.
On the bigger competitor Chrome, Firefox still lags behind.
Coming just a short while after the June speed boost, Firefox will become the third internet browser to offer full VR support. If you do upgrade to Firefox 55 you should be aware that your Firefox profile will be incompatible with older versions of the browser. With the updated Firefox, all you have to do is click a button emblazoned with a pair of VR goggles, toss on your headset and, voila, you're in virtual reality. Further, users will also be able to reposition the sidebar.
