Mozilla has just released an early developer preview of a web browser for the Magic Leap One AR headset.

The browser is built on Mozilla’s Servo engine technology, the company’s high-performance browser engine designed for both application and embedded use.

Magic Leap One already boasts its own native browser called Helio, which serves up both the 2D and 3D web. Magic Leap bills Helio as “the web as it should be: liberated from the confines of flat browsers.”

Magic Leap is Offering Individual Developers up to $500K for Their AR Projects

Mozilla announced the browser in a blog post, and say they’re only offering support for basic 2D pages at this time. The company hopes to eventually bring the “full Firefox browser experience” sometime in 2019 after working with their partners and community.

If you own a Magic Leap One, the $2,300 developer-focused standalone AR headset, you can download and try out the builds, provide feedback, and get involved in the community.

    Does it not crack anyone else up? That this company Magic Leap (I like Palmers term from his review of the he reviewed “Tragic Heap”) has to offer devs a $500k bounty to outside devs for apps.
    I guess we now know they saved some of that VC money to invest in devs that can really advance the tech software wise.
    Just wow.
    Was thier pitch on the different series of funding went like this.
    We will have an awesome dev kit(not that awesome), but no good devs, but don’t worry VC folks we plan to just throw money up on a bounty for up and coming devs lol.
