Cool Vl Viewer, The Coolest Second Life Viewer
The Cool VL Viewer is a Third Party Second Life Viewer developed by a Second Life resident named Henri Beauchamp. The current version of the Cool VL Viewer is based on Snowglobe Viewer code but with many improvements and bug fixes applied to it.
Second Life is a popular 3D Virtual World and to access this virtual world, you will need to use a Second Life Viewer. A Second Life Viewer is like a Web Browser but instead of browsing web pages or websites, a Second Life Viewer is used to view the virtual world in 3D.
Second Life comes with its own official Second Life Viewer and you can use it to view the virtual world of Second Life but it is optional. Most users of Second Life don’t use the official Second Life Viewer, most of them use Third Party Viewers created and developed by the community.
There are many Third Party Second Life Viewers to choose from but the coolest of them all is the Cool VL Viewer.

- Built-In Radar
- Area Object Search
- Inventory Backup
- Advanced Build Tool
- Speed Rezzing
- RestrainedLove Support
- Display Name Support
- Grid Selection Tool
- and many more
Unlike other Third Party Viewers that mainly focus on adding lots of shinies to attract users to use them, the Cool VL Viewer focuses more on stability. What’s the use of having lots of shinies if you can’t even use them because of constant viewer crashes.
This is where the Cool VL Viewer excels. It may not have all the shinies available in other Third Party Viewer but when it comes to stability, the Cool VL Viewer can’t be beat.
The Cool VL Viewer is also distributed as a difference file. What this means is, it installs itself on top of the official Snowglobe viewer and replaces only those files that need replacing. This makes the Cool VL Viewer the smallest or lightest Third Party Viewer for Second Life.
Also, the Cool VL Viewer works well with older computers. If your computer is already having problems with the official Second Life Viewer 2 then give the Cool VL Viewer a try.
You can download the Cool VL Viewer form it’s official website at http://sldev.free.fr/. Remember, you must first install the official Second Life Snowglobe Viewer before installing the Cool VL Viewer on top of it. Full instructions on how to install the Cool VL Viewer can be found here.
