With the browser about to enter beta, Firefox 3.6 is set to get computer orientation detection. The feature which is set to appear in the mobile version of the browser, Fennec, will also be added to Firefox 3.6 before its final release.

“Originally built as something that we would include for our upcoming mobile browser release, we’ve made it available on desktop systems as well. Many modern Macbooks and Thinkpads contain devices and drivers that expose this information. We’ve added support for Linux, Macs and some Thinkpads where drivers and devices are available.” wrote Christopher Blizzard, a Mozilla employee.

A demo video can be seen below:
