Mozilla’s WebXR Viewer is an augmented reality (AR) viewer that lets you create and run AR experiences built with web technologies and ARKit.
WebXR will soon be a cross-platform Web API for AR and VR. But, proposals cannot become specifications without developer and consumer feedback, so we have released the WebXR Viewer to give web developers a chance to experiment with AR, and provide input to the WebXR community as they develop AR support in the WebXR specification.
The WebXR viewer has a snapshot of the WebXR API built in, and also still supports our old WebXR API proposal (although this old version of the API will not be supported after the WebXR API is finalized).
In this release, you can:
- Navigate to websites written using our original proposal for WebXR, available at http://github.com/mozilla/webxr-polyfill.
- Navigate to websites written to use a version of the official WebXR API, available at http://github.com/immmersive-web/webxr.

This update is focused on fixing stability issues and bug.
- The XRViewer keeps ARKit running for a short while between XR session, to allow users to switch between 2D and XR pages without incurring complete ARKit startup times each time they enter an XR session. We have seen issues where this causes problems, so we have changed the XRViewer to reset ARKit more often.
- Starting a new session clears out relocalization attempts to prevent immediately getting thrown into "relocalizing" loops
- Allow ARKit to automatically relocalize when returning from the background to prevent objects from disappearing after loading the worldMap
- Fix bug that caused the permissionLevelButton to become inactive after granting and subsequently denying "Device Motion" access on a WebXR site
