Phoenix FireStorm Beta "Day 4" "My Over All Impression's" " Very Positive"

By Avatar JayR Cela

    Personally I think this is an excellent viewer for every day use. When you consider the fact that it is based on V2.5 code ( currently LL is at 2.7.x and it is still a piece of crap ) this is a truly an amazing feat. Aside from some quirk's, and lack of a few building feature's. The Phoenix team actually listen's to their user base, and implement's the suggestion's and idea's people express.

   Customers have been complaining to the Lab about the piss poor User Interface of V2 since day One !!!

    The Phoenix team has corrected 90% of the original design flaws of Viewer2 in a few short months. While  LL muddles along a year and 1/2 later with the same piss ass design. Go figure that one out.

    There are a ton of hidden gems ( feature's ) in the various Preference's Menu's, but hey finding them is half the fun. Some ruff edge's here and there need to be ironed out, ( it is after all still a Beta )  but at least they ask for your opinion's and implement them when possible. A perfect example is the user opinion survey, currently available on the Phoenix home page.  

     Now when was the last time you can ever remember the Lab actually listening to their customer's ?
