Wolvic User Interface

Flexible windows, tabs, zooming and web rendering in Wolvic

Wolvic is an Open Source Web browser developed for XR (Extended Reality) devices, focusing on delivering both traditional web browsing and immersive experiences across multiple platforms. Led by Igalia, with its significant expertise in browser engine development and standards organizations, Wolvic aims to broaden the accessibility and functionality of web browsing in the XR space. This project will further the development of Wolvic by improving its user experience and adding support for more content, standards, and platforms. We will enhance the flexibility of window management, improve browsing functionality like tabs and zoom, and refine hand tracking and related features in the 3D space. Although Wolvic currently uses the Gecko browser engine, its architecture is designed to be independent of any particular engine; for improved support and performance, we will integrate the Chromium engine and make available a Chromium-based version of Wolvic alongside the existing Gecko-based one. Furthermore, we will extend compatibility to new device formats, such as lightweight Augmented Reality (AR) glasses. Finally, we are enhancing our support of AR experiences on the Web and implementing the WebPayments standard for secure online transactions.
