During an interview with USA Today, Mozilla CEO Tom Beard said: "If 'web video' gets turned into 'web VR,' it could be a game-changer". With two years of development on MozVR in secret, Mozilla has had its engineering director Vlad Vukicevic, who led the development of WebGL, working on MozVR.

Josh Carpenter, a user-experience designer who has been working closely with Vukicevic said: "VR is too big to be left just to (gamers)".
