Web based Second Life? Yeah, but…

When I first heard about MoveableLife.net  I thought it had to be too good to be true.  I mean, Second Life in a browser?  C’mon… No way.  I mean, we all know that Second Life is pretty processor intensive.  Not as much as many games, but running it from within a web browser?  No way!

Well, it’s true!  BUT, not quite the way you think.  You can log in to Second Life, and you can take a few actions, but it’s hardly the full SL experience.  For example, you see who’s online, chat with friends (voice and text), see your inventory, and scroll around the overhead map.  You can’t actually see what’s going on in world at all, change your clothes or move objects around in your inventory.  So it’s pretty darn limited.

So while it may not be the full featured SL solution you’re  looking for, it is a nice step in the right direction.  And let’s face it, often the best part of SL is the conversation :)
