Firestorm Viewer is one of the most popular viewer by many OpenSimulator users. It provides a very easy to use interface and contains many custom features other viewers may not have.
Singularity Viewer is a viewer based off the classic style of the orginial SecondLife viewer design, yet contains many of the features and customizations of the latest technology while keeping the old look and feel.
Alchemy Viewer a great viewer that is being developed by many people involved in the OpenSimulator community and has much of the latest technology other viewers tend to opt out of.
