Very good news, let's just hope it doesn't take 3 years to develop, by then it may be an Open Sim project.

Adeon Writer

I'm personally hoping for a Unity3D based viewer.


Wow does this mean that we will have a viewer that dosent crash every 5 mins and is lagg free or is this the begining of the end for second life as we no it

I'm curious if Adobe's announcement at AdobeMAX that Flash 11 will support both OpenGL and DirectX will lead to a decent browser version of Second Life and Blue Mars.

Chantal Harvey

Good news. Period. This will be good for SL. I am so looking forward to this. M talked about this at Metameets 2010!


Believe when i see

hugobiwan zolnir

Let's be clear.

We need it if we don't want to be like fishes in a glass bottle and want to share and spread what can be done with this 3D world.


Ignatius Onomatopoeia

For all my griping about LL after the price-hike for education and nonprofits, this is exciting news.

Students would love this. It would play on the type of hardware they actually tote around with them on campuses.

Daniel Smith

Am glad this will "Unite" the browser and SL :)

Wizard Gynoid

Gojiyo has this now. It's funny, but Gojiyo seems to be everything that Linden Lab wants SL to be. It's almost like LL is using Gojiyo as the ideal model. The only problem is, i found Gojiyo to run relatively slow, albeit in a browser. http://www.gojiyo.com

Rodion Resistance

Thanks for the info on Gojiyo, Wizard! I tried it and it was pretty nice--very straightforward, not much hassle in getting in, just needed to install the 2mb Unity installer before getting in. Reminds me a lot of the now-defunct There.com.

Katharine Berry posted an image of the SL Web Viewer, showing how it looks like from the inside:


For a "simplified" web-based viewer, the graphics are astonishingly good!
