Among several other things, you can browse 2D and 3D internet without moving your mouse, search things, and even more. Since virtual reality is a technology that is becoming popular, many companies are adapting their products to make it easier to connect to it. Mozilla, the developer of the popular Firefox browser, is the most recent of these, and its announcement today opens up new ways for users of VR Oculus, Daydream and Viveport eyewear to interact on the web.
