WebVR is an emerging JavaScript-based API supporting a variety of virtual reality devices to allow more people to experience VR content in traditional web browsing interfaces. The great advantage is that beyond the web browser no further plug-ins or apps are required to view and design VR content. The API is under continuous improvement thanks to the efforts of developers working for Mozilla and Google. The rendering of the VR content is based on the related WebGL API.
