Firefox 3.6 to be orientation-aware

Posted on Tuesday, October 13 2009 @ 17:43:01 CEST by

CNET reports Firefox 3.6 will be orientation-aware, the new version of Mozilla's popular browser will be able to detect the orientation of laptops and mobile devices equipped with accelerometers. This new feature may be interesting for certain type of games like labyrinth-type games with virtual marbles rolling around boards.
"One new feature that we're including as part of Firefox 3.6 is support for web pages to access machine orientation information if it's available," Blizzard wrote. "Many modern MacBooks and ThinkPads contain devices and drivers that expose this information. We've added support for Linux, Macs and some ThinkPads where drivers and devices are available."

Mozilla is working on the technology for mobile devices, too, where orientation-aware games are a big deal.
