A Word on Viewers

Second Life is somewhat unique in its approach to third party viewers in that it releases code to a degree. There are a whole mess of viewers designed for a variety of different systems, everything from things for specific to mac to ones for cell phones. I've played with a few over the years depending on what I needed.

I generally favor my Firestorm on my computer, rather than the official viewer. It's not as cutting edge, but it certainly has more options for customization. I've done Singularity and Catznip too, with different circumstances going. Singularity worked on my dying computer better, while Catznip was pretty good overall when I was on a stable version.

I do have a viewer for my phone, since life is weird and crazy at times. Since I use an android, that means I was able to get Lumiya going. While most of the other apps are text only, Lumiya actually renders the SL world well enough for someone to hit a poseball or wander around. It sucks battery pretty fast though.
