MOZILLA --
Mozilla's Virtual Reality team working in conjunction with the Google Chrome team is ready to release a proposal for a new web API for handling VR devices: meet the WebVR 1.0 proposal.

Mozilla plans to soon support the WebVR 1.0 APIs in their Firefox Nightly builds next quarter. This WebVR API provides interfaces from enumerating VR displays, creating a render script, presentation of the VR content to the headset, submitting frames, and the many other steps involved in creating a web-based virtual reality experience.

You can learn more about the current WebVR 1.0 API proposal via hacks.mozilla.org. There are also more details on Bradon Jones' blog of Google.
