Our initial focus was prototyping web browsing in virtual reality. We used modified builds of Firefox with experimental features enabled (e.g. an early WebVR API) and interface written in WebGL and HTML/CSS to explore VR versions of classic browsing interactions, such as entering a URL, navigating from site to site, selecting favorites, etc. These prototypes were demoed at events such as GDC 2015, and led helped inform the nascent WebVR API design.
