Firestorm is a community development project headed by The Phoenix Firestorm Project Incorporated as an alternative viewer for Second Life. Our primary goal is to improve the user experience with new features while extending usability, functionality and flexibility of the Viewer 3 code base. Our secondary goal is to lessen the learning curve for users migrating from older V1 viewers, while still being easily accessible to users of Linden Lab's latest viewer offerings. 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 in various languages. More information on support can be found from our website. Documentation here and Tutorial Videos here
