Firefox 55 with WebVR Lets Users Use Virtual Reality Devices with the Web

Firefox 55’s WebVR virtual reality technology will be enabled by default only on Microsoft Windows systems, supporting the Oculus Rift and HTC VIVE VR headsets, but they plan to extend it to other supported platforms, such as macOS and maybe GNU/Linux in future versions of the web browser if it turns out to be very popular among users and developers alike. Firefox 55 could also come with a new screenshot tool that lets users make screenshots of web pages, though Mozilla said that this feature would undergo A/B testing so that it won’t be available to all users. Screenshots can be saved locally or uploaded to the cloud. Firefox 55 will also enable search suggestions by default for users who have not yet explicitly opted-out of them.
