First, what is the Phoenix Firestorm Viewer all about? Firestorm is the next generation viewer for Second Life produced by us; it is based off of Linden Lab's V3 code base but with a focus on making it V1 familiar. It's focus is to provide you with a smaller learning curve and an easier transition from V1 to V2. However, while that has been our focus it is important to mention that it still does have a learning curve, it is not exactly the same as V1 or the Phoenix Viewer. Because of this we have gone to great lengths to provide you with tutorial videos and extensive documentation which we HIGHLY encourage you to have a look at. It will take some getting used to, but if you give it a chance you'll find it will quickly feel very comfortable for full time use.
