Firestorm, tried em all it just has the most to offer.

I am just bothered by how landmarks work now... like you get a slurl but you can't read the coordinates anymore and it is annoying when during RP I need to find someone and I can't use direct pin point on him anymore. Slight lacks that I am managing around.

singularity is my viewer of choice. when i'm back at my dorm on my asus desktop, i draw between 110 to 240 fps running singularity. it's also an excellent combat viewer. when my sim, valkyrie forest, is full or under attack, i can still get 90+ fps. my asus is win 7 64 bit running intel sandybridge i7 2600k @ 3.4ghz with nvidia geforce gtx 560 ti ...

unfortunately, i'm more often on a laptop running around campus and logging into sl gor to check on my tribe with any connection i can find. running singularity on a laptop is more demanding and my fps plunges below 20 to as low as 5 or 6 fps depending on what i'm doing.

my second viewer of choice, usually when building is phoenix...

these are some shots i took running singularity in valkyrie forest to give you an idea of what i can see. first two i'm standing in my forest and a campfire outside of camp valkyrie. third one is a close shot of camp valkyrie entrance. again all singularity:

I use Phoenix with mesh because I have been using Phoenix for awhile and I am use to it. I tried Firestorm but it and I did not get on. Personality issues haha!

I use exodus i get killer fps and very little viewer lag.. plus neat tool tells me what sims have x number of people at a given moment...

@victor.. Dno what issues your having i havent had any problems ejecting people or adding etc... sometimes opening group notices suck but i think there other causes *coughs sl* behind that

never used area search so no biggie

I just opened up Nirans and.. wow....
The graphics are better, I don't get nearly as much lag as Phoenix and Firestorm - and I can switch on and off my pretty picture settings like Kristen's.

This has a radar built in - it's under the people tab, Pancake.

I'm going to play with it today, but I think I've found my new viewer. I can't say no to 30FPS with good graphics settings.

I played with Niran's last night and YAY I can save pics! I logged out of it though to RP cause I couldn't figure out how to make "nearby chat" part of my IM box. BUT it will definitely be my preferred viewer for photos.
