Mozilla’s goal of high quality plugin-free gaming on the Web is taking a giant leap forward today with the release of Unity 5. This new version of the world’s most popular game development tool includes a preview of their amazing WebGL exporter. Unity 5 developers are one click away from publishing their games to the Web in a whole new way, by taking advantage of WebGL and asm.js. The result is native-like performance in desktop browsers without the need for plugins.
GDC 2015 is a major milestone in a long term collaboration between Mozilla and the world’s biggest game engine makers. We set out to bring high performance games to the Web without plugins, and that goal is now being realized. Unity Technologies is including the WebGL export preview as part of their Unity 5 release, available today. Epic Games has added a beta HTML5 exporter as part of their regular binary engine releases. This means plugin-free Web deployment is now in the hands of game developers working with these popular tools. They select the Web as their target platform and, with one click, they can build to it. Now developers can unlock the world’s biggest open distribution platform leveraging two Mozilla-pioneered technologies, asm.js and WebGL.

Tomorrow at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Mozilla will release an open beta of the Webmaker app: a free, independent web publishing tool. This is an important next step in Mozilla’s effort to dramatically increase digital literacy around the world.
The Webmaker app emerged from a year of research in Bangladesh, India and Kenya. The research pointed to two things: new smartphone users face a steep learning curve, often limiting themselves to basic apps like Facebook and not even knowing they are on the Internet; and users yearn for — and can benefit greatly from — the ability to create local, relevant content.

We just accomplished something very important together. Today, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission voted for strong net neutrality protections. This happened because millions of people — including many hundreds of thousands
