RoadToVR reports that the developer and beta versions of Google Chrome now have flags which, when enabled, will potentially enable a web VR experience. Right now, these flags don’t seem to do anything.
It’s been possible to browse VR-ready websites on iOS, but that experience is limited to the particular website that you visit. Navigation out of the site would involve removing the VR headset, which is a little cumbersome and also kills immersion.
With WebVR implementation in Chrome, Google is hoping to build a holistic VR experience for the web. They envision a VR future where you won’t need to step in and out of a VR browsing experience, where the entirety of the web is available to browse in VR. Samsung has already released a VR browser that works well with Samsung Gear.
Google is also working on a version of Chrome for the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive.
