Oculus is building a VR web browser, codenamed 'Carmel'

Co-founder Nate Mitchell says that it's 'fully optimized' for virtual reality.

Today at Oculus Connect, co-founder Nate Mitchell announced that the company is working on a fully VR web browser. It's dubbed "Carmel," emphasis on the "mel," and is "fully optimized for VR." This follows the likes of Google making aspects of Chrome on mobile, for instance, browsable in virtual reality. On top of that, Oculus is working toward more web-based VR stuff in general with tech called React. React is the framework for making web experiences more VR ready, all without the need to download huge program files. One of the demos on stage, for instance, was a car configurator from Renault.
