This is been one of my favorite blog sites. I skim through the pictures and articles almost every day. I’ve gone looking for lots of the stuff shown in the blog. But, Pru Rexroth says her time in SL and running the blog is changing.
Most viewer reviews are written for those using Second Life®. However, more grids are opening. For the people using alternate grids there is another blog looking at viewers: Excelsior Station.

The most recent comparison is dated May 3, 2012.
The comparison is a cross between a viewer list and a feature comparison. One of the valuable points in the comparison is whether the viewer is multi-grid ready, does it have a grid manager, handy comparison point.
Inara at Living in a Modem World and I, here, review viewers as do several others. There are more viewers than any of us can keep up with. I get to viewers as my curiosity moves me and as time is available. There is no single viewer that provides for all my needs. But, knowing which viewer has what features and being able to make a quick selection is a near impossibility. One has to read a load of reviews to decide. There is some help for that problem.
Atrebor Zenovka or Beach, as he is generally called, has made a comparison sheet. You can find it here: Viewer Comparison. It takes a little figuring out. You can find Beach’s Lake Bottom Lab blog here. (Note: the background on the blog is an image taken in Myst Online Uru Live.)
The best viewer is a mythical creature like a unicorn. Also, the viewers are changing so fast, one can’t keep up. A chart like Beach’s becomes a major effort.
