If you want to surf the web with Microsoft's HoloLens 2, you'll be guaranteed to have a browser optimized for the immersive format -- Mozilla is partnering with Microsoft to make Firefox Reality available for the next-gen headset. While it's unclear exactly how much this will vary from the existing browser (above), the developer hopes to learn more about bringing augmented-reality material to the web. It'll build on work for existing mixed reality headsets like Magic Leap and run on Mozilla's next-generation Servo platform.

Not surprisingly, you'll have to wait a while to try this. There's a prototype of Firefox Reality for HoloLens, but you'll have to wait until summer to use it. Nonetheless, it's good to know that you won't be hurting for web access.
