WebVR is a Virtual Reality Platform that allows the users to experience VR in their web browsers. WebVR allows the users to access their browsers through their VR Devices. VR content can be created with WebGL, a Javascript API for rendering 3D graphics. Currently WebVR is available for Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.
