Mozilla announced the launch of Firefox Reality, a new browser for augmented and virtual reality headsets Tuesday.
It’s an open source, independent application designed to be accessible on a wide variety of devices. In the video below, you can see an early demo of it working on the HTC Vive Focus, even though Mozilla hasn’t specified which headsets will support it.
While many find this very skeptical, with privacy leaks Mozilla says it takes the matter very seriously. “Mixed reality is still new…We don’t yet have all the answers for what privacy looks like in this new medium, but we are committed to finding the solution. We will continue to build on the proven permissions model of the web platform, which provides even more protection than native apps provide.”
