Mozilla announced that its mixed reality web browser, FireFox Reality is now available on the Microsoft Store.
This browser was introduced in 2018 with the aim of a new web browsing experience in virtual reality and now Mozilla is adding AR (augmented reality) capabilities.
“Firefox Reality is an experimental browser for a promising new platform, and this initial release focuses on exposing the powerful AR capabilities of HoloLens 2 devices to web developers through the new WebXR standard,” Mozilla states in a blog post.
“The Firefox Reality team continues to work on standardizing and implementing new WebXR modules to expand the web platform’s capabilities on the device. We encourage developers with HoloLens 2 access to give our new browser a spin and explore the potential for bringing new experiences to the augmented reality web,” Mozilla states.
