Firestorm has surpassed LL V1.23 viewer usage

Jessica Lyon who is the Project Manager of the Phoenix Viewer Project has announced on the Phoenix Viewer official blog that Firestorm has now surpassed LL Viewer 1.23 viewer usage which is pretty awesome.

Yesterday we received word from LL that Firestorm has surpassed LL V1.23 viewer usage both in time spent as well as distinct users. This moves Firestorm Viewer into 3rd place on the Second Life grid by way of usage.

Firestorm code base..

However, while Firestorm can be made to resemble the Phoenix viewer relatively easily… Phoenix it is not, nor is it V1. Firestorm is a new viewer based on the LL v2 code base, and is still in it’s infancy in relation to what we have planned. 

Update on members of the team..

Currently, we have 54 members on our team, broken down that’s 16 developers and 38 support members providing you with support in 8 different languages.

Congratulations Firestorm and keep up the good work!

  1. I run widows 7 but i cant stand the viewer2 and its offspring. Sorry, but this “laggard” wont be letting go of the v1 phoenix for a long long time.


  2. Don’t think I didn’ try to like firestorm. I used it for several days. Maybe for some it is easier to use, but I for one didn’t find the interface all that intuitive. I especially had a hard time with several notecards open, trying to copy and paste bits from several onto one for a group notice. What should have taken seconds.. took a couple of minutes to do
