Mozilla and Epic Games bring the Unreal Engine 3 to Firefox


Mozilla boasted on their blog that they have succeeded in optimising JavaScript for web-based 3D graphics. The foundation has partnered with Epic Games to bring the popular Unreal Engine 3 to Firefox with the help of some JavaScript, HTML5 and WebGL magic. We don’t expect to be running Gears Of War in a browser window anytime soon, as games of this tier contain tens of gigabytes of data. In the following demonstration, you can see the all-too-familiar Epic Citadel and the multiplayer shooter BananaBread.
