Firefox Creator Mozilla is Working on a Voice-Controlled Browser Scout

Mozilla, Firefox makers, to Allow Voice Controlled Web Browser Called Scout for Reading of Net to Listeners

Mozilla happens to the creating company of Firefox. It is currently busy making a browser that will run on voice control. According to CNet, This program is named Scout and it will lend consumers a golden opportunity to explore the world wide web to their heart’s content.

They won’t require a display screen, mouse or keyboard either which is such a relief. A simple and singular order from the owner such as “Scout, list the number of bear species in the world?” will be sufficient to allow the browser to read out the entire content pertaining to the command.

Scout was showcased to employees of the company recently. The rest of the nitty gritty details surrounding Scout are missing though. It still remains in its nascent stages.

When significant work has been done on it, everything about it will be put on display for public consumption. Amazon, Google, and Apple are also on the march ready to design their very own voice assistants.

These include Amazon’s famous Alexa. Mozilla is, however, planning on going one step ahead of them all with its voice browser titled Scout.

The Internet of the future will have voice command as a fundamental part of it. Mozilla happens to be a non-profit organization. Scout is at the top of its agenda and will remain so.

The venue for this project is in San Francisco. Voice control was once just a figment of the imagination of science fiction fans. Nowadays it has become a reality though. Novel AI technology has made the impossible very possible indeed.

For Mozilla, a voice assistant and web browser could open the way towards greater shares in the cyberspace game. While Google Chrome holds 58% of the Net stakes, Firefox only holds 5% currently. So this is an area where a little improvement could go a long way.
