Create alternative browser for Oculus Go

I'm a product designer and mobile developer, I'm newer to VR development though. I've been trying to find any assets/documentation/tutorials on how to create a browser type application for mobile VR. I want to make a minimalist browser that is primarily for media viewing (youtube, amazon, netflix, etc).  

Wanting the browser to be treated like a desktop environment--stream netflix from web, etc. (currently from Oculus browser it defaults to mobile and wants you to download netflix app, then says you need silverlight/html5 if you go to desktop view).

I don't see alternate browsers on the store though--so maybe this isn't possible or allowed? And maybe silverlight/html5 support isn't possible?

Any insight or direction would be really helpful. Thanks!

    Hi,

    Welcome to the Oculus Developer Forums.

    Regarding this:

    The closest application I can imagine to this would be Virtual Desktop, which is coming to Oculus GO. I can't give specific guidance on this request, unfortunately, as this ask lies outside of our general integration and platform-level support we provide here.

    I would search around online for assets and tutorial videos for this use case. We currently do not have a sample framework that covers making specific types of applications.

    Hey lazerlex

    Have you been able to find anything to help you create that alternatives browser ? Im also looking to create one. I would like to be able to have multiple tab open at the same time. :smile:
