You have been able to browse the web on your Oculus Rift since the first dev kit, but not with a UI designed specifically for the VR device. MozVR is in development along with a specific version of Firefox or Chromium to allow Oculus users to browse the web in a new way. It will work with both Mac and Windows, though as of yet there is no mention of Linux support which should change in the near future. You need to get your hands on an Oculus to try out the new browser, it simply is not going to translate to the desktop. The software is open sourced and available on Github so you can contribute to the overall design of the new way to surf the web as well as optimizing your own site for VR. Check out more on MozVR and Oculus over at The Inquirer.
