Can anyone actually see mesh?

I know a lot of people are pushing hard for mesh, but as far as I can tell the main people willing to use the viewer are content creators themselves.

I'm not a mesh maker. But I was curious.

How many people can actually see mesh content on their regular viewer the normally use (not just some side viewer you explore to see mesh for 5 mins, but your day to day viewer.).

Until Firestorm is out of beta, the answer is no.

I've been using it, but not that many people actually wear it so I don't know if I'm seeing mesh or prims.

Added: Not much call for mesh with my character anyway... what good is mesh to a slave that wears mostly nothing?

I am still using Imprudence and don't plan to switch any time soon. I like the SL Viewer 1 format and really do not want to change. I only just switched from the actual Viewer 1 to Imprudence and now I can see boobies bounce! Yay! LOL...

I did talk to one person who asked me if I was making anything in mesh and I told them no. Not yet. They informed me they were wearing a full mesh kimono and when I zoomed in to take a look, the person looked like a big weird blocky figure. The whole avatar except the feet were skewed. I figure if everyone starts looking like that I am eventually going to have to change.

I use that new Exodus viewer and love it. I'm used to the V2 layout as that was the basic viewer they give new people a tutorial in.

And some gorean sims are (re)built in mesh, so when there is a lot of interaction with them, you don't really have much choice unless you enjoy wading through a field of spheres...

Cool Viewer is a viewer 1 viewer with mesh and has an amazing framerate.

Not in any big hurry to use a viewer that supports mesh yet.

I've been a firestorm lover since its 2nd beta release so I can see it. I'm sooooo impressed with some items for women. Thigh high and knee high boots are just amazing. I do think you are right about it primarily being content creators because the build tools in firestorm are a huge plus as well. I'm looking forward to having some time to see Skerry.

Exodus and the new firestorm are passable... and the rumor is someone's making a phoenix viewer that does mesh as well. And really... mesh is the future. Better to do it now 'cause its already popping up all over... and its not just developers that care.
There used to be a gif here. It was awesome. But it's gone now.
