Mozilla, the creator of the popular Firefox browser, is working on an entirely voice-controlled browser, CNET reported on Wednesday.
The project is called 'Scout' and its aim is to allow users to explore the internet without ever touching a mouse, screen, or keyboard. Mozilla is reportedly envisioning voice commands along the lines of : "Hey Scout, read me the article about polar bears,"
Scout was revealed for the first time ever to Mozilla employees on Wednesday, and a Mozilla spokesperson told Business Insider that Scout is still very much an "early stage project."
Amazon, Apple, and Google all continue to work on voice assistants, but Mozilla appears to be the first company to begin developing a voice-based web browser.
