The video below provides an introduction to the new browser: According to TechCrunch Mozilla is ahead of the game with the new offering, stating that the web "is a pretty natural fit for VR".

"We had to rethink everything, including navigation, text-input, environments, search and more", Mozilla's Andre Vrignaud writes in a post on the Mozilla blog.

This is just version 1.0 but Mozilla says that 1.1 is just around the corner which will add from a growing list of desired features.

"This required years of research, and countless conversations with users, content creators, and hardware partners". This web browser makes use of voice search for searching while you step into an immersive computer-generated world. The browser's homepage will present popular and trending content from around the web so users can more easily find unique experiences built for virtual reality. Text input for VR headsets, especially lightweight mobile versions, can be a terrible task because of a lack of input devices designed for that objective. This version of Firefox is built on the same Quantum engine that rolled out on other platforms earlier this year, which should offer pretty good performance.

In fact, when you start the application we will see on the home screen various experiences and content that invite you to explore these new developments to squeeze even more our virtual reality glasses. "This is why we built a feed of incredible content into the home screen of Firefox Reality". Like the standard Firefox web browser, there is also a privacy mode that allows you to browse site in VR incognito. Here Mozilla seems to want to become a distribution channel more in the style of other stores such as VivePort, Oculus or DayDream.

Mozilla said it will be adding new features to the browser "at a steady pace", including support for bookmarks, 360 videos and accounts. However, Mozilla promises to make these features available as soon as possible with the 1.1 updates, and Firefox Reality is now also available for standalone VR headsets such as the Oculus Go, Lenovo Mirage Solo or HTC Vive Focus.
