Chrome 79 Beta Adds The WebXR Device API For VR On The Web
The Chrome 79 Beta most notably comes with WebXR Device API support for supporting VR head-mounted displays from the browser. The WebXR Device API will be the cross-browser standard for VR content on the web.
The Chrome 79 Beta also adds auto-focus support for HTML/SVG elements, possible rendering optimizations via the rendersubtree attribute, computing img/video aspect ratios from width or height HTML attributes, font-optical-sizing property support, the CSS line-style-type now allows arbitrary strings to use for list markers, and a variety of other developer additions.
