"A major blunder by LL's, terrible"

August 24, 2010  |  By Dango517

 |  Version: Second Life 1.23.5.136262

Pros

It looks better but do not be fooled. It is faster when it works maybe too fast with some ADM processors seemingly impaired by it.

Cons

This viewer along with resent server upgrades has made SL a place to avoid for 6 months. Second Life continues to earn it's software the term "Lindened". From very awkward UI navigation to missing essential features, a dud.

Summary

Use the Emerald viewer. Though it too, has recently come under fire for security problems. All in all, I'd avoid Second Life for at least 6 months till this crapware is repaired. Even P. Linden himself has said they will be working on this software for a year, they'll have too. Amazing!

"This viewer is complete crap!"

June 23, 2010  |  By bumpercars1

 |  Version: Second Life 1.23.5.136262

Pros

It works, and it's simple.

Cons

It's boring, doesn't have enough features. Way too long to load things, it's overall way too dull.

Summary

Go to http://inflife.net/ and get the SL Pop Viewer! Best viewer I have EVER used! You?ll be VERY happy with it, and you?ll never have to deal with those pesky slow logins and load times. The SL Pop Viewer completely blows away Emerald. And you don't have to worry about Modular Systems secretly looking into your computer! Go get it now!

"It won't start up."

May 25, 2010  |  By xdeathbywaffles

 |  Version: Second Life 1.23.5.136262

Pros

None......

Cons

It just keeps saying that there's an error every time I try to open it.

Summary

It's not worth the waste of time.

"Decent version of LL's viewer"

March 23, 2010  |  By javelinadream

 |  Version: Second Life 1.23.5.136262

Pros

Stable SL client. Adds a few new functions from previous version e.g. mini-map that make more comparable to combat-oriented viewers like Vertical Life.

Cons

Odd and annoying pop-up's about how to create user content, how to move to and fro. Can be disabled though.

Summary



Updated on Mar 31, 2010

Nearly forgot... two more comments on new Second Life client::
The viewer search engine is used to locate SL residents, stores, events, land sales etc. The new version is much slower to load and use than the prior LL viewer's seach.function. Odd and inconvenient, maybe Linden LAbs will fix it or can swap out to the prior version...!, Second Life "players" ( I think ofthem more as residents, as there is gaming but only in specific areas of SL) now have an reduced size profiile display . That makes a difference for RPG folks, but only injures the vanity of non-RPG like me!

"A Stable and Secure Second Life Client"

November 10, 2009  |  By westrajc

 |  Version: Second Life 1.23.5.136262

Pros

Stable (Rarely Crashes), Good performance, Secure (When downloaded from www.secondlife.com)

Cons

No 'Beginner Mode" (Daunting array of menu options), Missing some desirable features found in 3rd-party clients like Emerald.

Summary

The 1.23.5 version of the Second Life Client is one of, if not the most stable in-house versions Linden Lab has released to date. This is pretty amazing, considering the large number of security-related updates that have been done to the client during the past 6-12 months.

The new user of Second Life will continue to find the learning curve for this default client formidable. Although there are optional 'Advanced' menu options, there is no corresponding 'beginner' mode. Version 2.x of the client promises a redesign that may make the client friendlier and provide different user levels.

Third party viewers, like the Emerald Client by Modular Systems (http://modularsystems.sl/), continue to gain popularity with those who want additional features not found in the version 1.23.5 SL viewer. Linden Lab is currently working on plans to develop a 'Client Registry,' that will hopefully make comparing different clients and finding trusted sources for them easier.
