Wow, just like the phone apps it got monetized quickly.

That's kind of an odd comment, though. The Android viewer* is very inexpensive, considering the development effort that went into it and the pathetically tiny market for anything SL-related.

All along the various web-based viewers have a whole different cost structure because they're server-side rendered, which means the customer is effectively time-sharing a high-end GPU, in addition to all the bandwidth costs the service must bear. So that's a recurring fee, and will inevitably be higher per month than the one-time app purchase price.

Of course, it's all open-source, so anybody can make their own. It's not as if nobody has ever tried.
