The "lightest" viewer these days

I have an old laptop I'm using during my vacation, and I am able to run SL on it with graphics on low, and patience on ultra. I'm using ye olde 1.23.5.

Is there a viewer that might run better than this one, or is everything else just gonna bitchslap my laptop and kick it in the jingle balls?

You might try the old Imprudence viewer.  I still run it on an old laptop when I'm not at home.

I have a mini laptop acer I use a lot when I cant use the desk top, for you to be able to even use Ultra, I am a little jealous lol. However, 1.23 is the one I have found that works the best for me on my laptop I wish you best of luck! Your best bet is to do custom settings, I usually keep avatar settings high and everything else a bit lower unless I am taking pictures or something in that matter where it needs to be higher. this can help it run faster also.

Cool still has a v1.23.5 version available... it has several updates and patches over the standard v1.23.5... however it's recently been shelved for support (no more updates coming)... there's also a v1.19 (pre-windlight) version that's in a similar situation...

I'm not sure anyone else is maintaining 1.23 codebase updates... all the TPV's seem to have moved on to supporting snowglobe v1.4 or higher

Hehe, I said "graphics on low, and patience on ultra." As in my patience.   I do tweak settings, but was hoping there was a viewer kinder to this lappie.

Will look into the ones mentioned so far, ty.
