Samsung Gear VR now works with the web's native VR format

Samsung's Gear VR already has a web browser, but it's now ready to browse the virtual reality experiences you find on the web, too. The company has introduced experimental support for WebVR that gives you full immersion when you visit supporting content using the headset. You'll have to enable it yourself, and Samsung is quick to warn that things can break (WebVR isn't a finished standard). Nonetheless, this is a big deal -- it helps justify the Gear VR browser's existence, and might give you one more reason to wear the device.
