With today’s Mozilla release of Firefox 15 for Windows, Apple OS X, Linux and Android, it’s a great time to check out a stunning new HTML5 first-person 3D shooting game compiled for that browser platform. It blew my mind when Mozilla release the upgrade today. But it’s Firefox and Chrome only. No MS Internet Explorer allowed.
Mozilla Firefox 15 Game Demo
Mozilla, reps say, used Emscipten to port over the game. , which was built in the programming language C++.
Try it out. Just head to Mozilla’s developer site. The desktop version of Firefox 15 or Google Chrome works fine, but forget MS Internet Explorer. Most Microsoft Internet Explorer versions have a tough time with WebGL– it is unlikely to work at all in IE 9 and 10. My short, unscientific test showed that to be true for me.
If you’re a Mozilla user you know that company is always upgrading Firefox with a ton of new features. It’s revved three times this year already. Watch for my screenshot gallery and first look tomorrow at the pros and cons of Firefox 5.
