4月3日,开发商Mozilla发布了新版火狐浏览器,但不是为电脑和手机设计,而是专为虚拟现实(VR)头盔量身定制。

Mozilla负责新技术的高级副总西恩·怀特在发布新版浏览器的博客文章中写道:“混合现实的未来主要是提供体验,而不是开发应用。不同体验之间的转换不应卡顿。火狐是首款内置WebVR的浏览器,WebVR是通过网页URL网址分享和享受虚拟现实内容的公开标准。基于这项标准,人们打造及提供沉浸式体验可以像点开网页一样简单。”

Mozilla全新研发的这款新版浏览器名为“火狐现实”,专门支持虚拟现实和增强现实头盔。浏览器结合了火狐现有网页技术与实验性的网页浏览器引擎Servo。

目前新版浏览器还没有正式推广。

和火狐桌面浏览器一样,火狐现实也是开源的。在初步开发阶段,浏览器的源代码将在谷歌虚拟现实设备Daydream和三星设备GearVR上以开发模式运行。(龙8国际|官网)

Mozilla unveiled a new version of its popular Firefox web browser today, but instead of being on your computer or mobile phone it’s designed to be used with a virtual reality headset.

“The future of mixed reality is about delivering experiences, not about building applications. There shouldn’t be friction moving from one experience to another,” Sean White, Senior Vice President, Emerging Technologies said in a blog post announcing the browser. “Firefox was the first browser to implement WebVR – an open standard for sharing and enjoying virtual reality content through a web URL. This lays the groundwork for creating and delivering immersive experiences using a method that is as simple as opening a web page.”

Called Firefox Reality, the browser was created from the ground up to be used with stand-alone virtual reality and augmented reality headsets. It was built using Firefox’s existing web technology combined with Servo, its experimental web engine.

For now, it’s not available to the public.

Just like Firefox’s desktop browser, Firefox Reality is open source. During its initial development period, the source code for the browser will run in development mode on the Daydream and GearVR devices.
