Firestorm Viewer Beta Has Arrived...

The day has finally arrived and the legendary PHOENIX FIRESTORM BETA VIEWER is ready for download and usage!
It is a perfect hybrid between Viewer1 and Viewer 2 with functionality almost like Phoenix as much as possible and includes full radar, built in AO as well as no sidebar, detachable windows etc etc. It even has the favored pie menu hoo hoo...
See the video tutorial below as well as the link for the Phoenix blog and download site.
I love it and is now my main full time viewer and after using it for 7 hours plus, I found it solid, reliable, rezz fast and seems like better graphics. I love it.
Sometime soon the old viewer 1's will no longer work so those of you who hate the Lindens Viewer 2 will want to get FIRESTORM because it is the easiest viewer to use next to viewer 1 etc.

Ziggy gives the Firestorm Beta Biewer 10 out of 10 Zig points...
