Mozilla has finally brought its made-for-VR web browser, Firefox Reality, to Oculus Quest.

In September of last year, the company initially released Firefox Reality on Oculus Go, Lenovo Mirage Solo, and Vive Focus (and other Vive Wave headsets) for free.

Now, according to a press statement, users on Quest can jump into the immersive web with what Mozilla calls “sharp text, high quality videos, and a seamless transition from 2D to 3D immersive modes.”

The company also boasts that Firefox Reality for Quest is “the best VR web browsing experience” due to Oculus Quest’s boost in performance and capabilities.

On all platforms however, Firefox Reality has Enhanced Tracking Protection enabled by default, which aims to protect users from tracking and collection of personal data by ad networks and tech companies. Mozilla additionally says the browser’s Enhanced Tracking Protection works in the background and “actually increase[s] the speed of the browser.”

In addition to voice search, Firefox Reality is currently available in 10 languages, including Japanese, Korean, Simplified & Traditional Chinese; the company says more languages are on the way.

In the next few months Mozilla says they’ll be rolling out support for WebXR, multi-window browsing, bookmarks sync, and more.
