Samsung Launches Web Browser For Gear VR.

Maybe it’s my game industry roots talking, but when I think of virtual reality, the last thing I imagine is checking updates on Facebook or poking through a Reddit thread.Bigwig South Korean device maker Samsung revealed in a Tuesday announcement that it has launched a web browser for its new Gear VR virtual reality headset. Yet come tomorrow, December 2, Samsung is going to provide proof of this concept with a virtual reality web browser called the Samsung Internet for Gear VR.

What’s more exciting is it will let you watch videos from websites directly on the headset, putting away the hassle of downloading them in a separate app. If the urge to add a comment to the Internet void hits you, Samsung Internet takes advantage of both voice input and a Gaze Mode keyboard to facilitate hands-free typing. Some of its features include voice recognition for input, an on screen keyboard, headset Gaze Mode to select menus by just looking at them and it will also let you import bookmarks from other browsers. There are a few sites to get started with in your default bookmarks, Yahoo, Google, Facebook and YouTube with a tab for more recommended sites once you start browsing a bunch.

The “Gaze Mode” is actually quite handy, and if you look at a specific item for a second or so, it’ll “click” the link for you automatically. Since the Oculus Store is developer-friendly, I hope that we get to see some tests and betas from other folks who have an idea of how the web should look in VR.

Here you can write a commentary on the recording "​Home for the holidays with my family, and virtual reality".
