Labels: migrated-launch-owp Type-Task
This issue has been automatically relabelled type=task because type=launch-owp issues are now officially deprecated. The deprecation is because they were creating confusion about how to get launch approvals, which should be instead done via type=launch issues.

We recommend this issue be used for implementation tracking (for public visibility), but if you already have an issue for that, you may mark this as duplicate.

Summary: Implement WebVR (was: OWP Launch: WebVR)
Mergedinto: 779691
Status: Duplicate (was: Assigned)
This was an OWP Launch issue, which is now obsolete. Some of the tracked work also relates to the "1.1" version of the API. I've opened issue 779691 to track work necessary to launch WebVR on all origins and blocked it on most of the same issues.
