It seems like Firefox is all set to compete against Chrome up to some extent in the VR World.

Firefox,  recently enhanced with a speed boost, is going for the gold here. Its latest version, Firefox 55, is set to come out today with complete VR support. The browser will be joining the ranks of rivals Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, which also added web-based VR functionality this past year.

Online VR on Firefox will be accessible for all Windows clients who have an HTC Vive or Oculus Rift headset. It’s something that has been underway for Mozilla for some time, utilizing a standard called WebVR that enables browsers to run virtual-reality experience. However, the feature is already accessible in Firefox Nightly, the pre-release version of Mozilla, and has extremely restricted accessibility in Servo, a browser engine developed by individual developers and backed by Mozilla.

In any case, Firefox falls behind its greater rival, Chrome. Chrome, which included online VR in February, is the most accessible program for VR stages at the moment. On Chrome, you can use VR content on the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and clearly, Google’s own particular Cardboard and Google Daydream.
