Firefox: the soon-compatible joysticks

Mozilla developers have found ways to use a joystick in the Firefox browser. Using a programming interface called GamepadAPI, they hope to create new uses for the software.

A demo video was released showing a Firefox browser running and responding instantly to commands passed to it via a joystick Xbox 360 connected to the computer. This demo is particularly interesting that Google announced last week wanting to engage in a similar field, making Chrome compatible with joysticks. Many have imagined then that the publisher would bring Chrome straight into the world of online games. A rumor resurfaced now with Mozilla.
