Firestorm is a community development project headed by The Phoenix Viewer Project as an alternative viewer for Second Life. The primary goals for this viewer is to improve the user experience while extending usability and functionality of the Viewer 2 code base. We package contributions from various community developers along with code from Linden Lab and of course ourselves to bring you a quality, feature-rich viewer experience backed up by a large volunteer support team available 24/7. The current release of Firestorm viewer is in an alpha stage of development and is not necessarily ready for full time use. Support from our support team will be minimal at best until we finalize an "Official Release" of the viewer, however you can join our in world group "Phoenix-Firestorm Preview Group" in world for peer to peer resident help. We hope to have an Official Release which we can provide full support for by late May or June.
