The Steam client incorporates a web browser that can also be used in virtual reality with the Oculus Rift using the VR mode that Valve implemented some time ago. Currently it seems to be the best option when browsing the web or watching online videos from our Rifts on a curved giant screen.
To use the Steam virtual reality mode, we remind you that it is done by activating the corresponding option in the settings menu of the Big Picture interface, but this option will only appear if it detects that we have an Oculus Rift connected. Once this is done, to access the web browser we just have to look at the lower left corner of the screen and press the Web button that is there.
To be able to use pages that need flash, you will have to install the corresponding plugin, accessing the Flash Player installation page and selecting our operating system in the first drop-down, and Flash Player 14 for other browsers in the second. This way we should be able to watch online videos, or access streaming video pages, which opens up a multitude of possibilities.
If we have problems reading the text with the DK1, we can press with the right mouse button and select Zoom, or press CTRL and the + and – keys to zoom in or out of the image. With the DK2 there should be no problems reading any text without zooming, although Valve has not yet pronounced on compatibility with the DK2.
