    Phoronix: Chromium Appears To Be Advancing Their Linux VR State

    Google's Chrome has offered virtual reality support for a while and most recently will even let you browse the web in VR while the Linux support has lagged behind...

    Linux is a second class citizen even on Firefox too, no surprise here.

    About VR on Chromium: I see you are over-hyping it, they did it just for testing purposes. Their target is Android, not Linux itself.

    This app draws the VR UI in a window on Linux, using fake browser state. This lets us debug UI appearance and implementation without building and loading the full Android APK.

      I guess that explains why I never heard of it.

        It occurs to me now, how useful are VR features in desktop-space web browsers when you can have something like Janus VR instead?

        There's no meaningful continuity from the monitor to the virtual environment, and I think that's just an inherent limitation of the format that can't be papered over with advances in technology. We probably should be focusing on making passable made-for-VR counterparts to desktop staples.
