Today, Microsoft announced that they’ve begun development on experimental WebVR support in Microsoft Edge! WebVR is the next frontier in web graphics, enabling developers to create a wide range of truly immersive experiences for a variety of devices.

Innovative and immersive WebVR content is already showing up on the web, and we expect to see even more coming as developers turn WebGL experiences into WebVR experiences.
