Bright Canopy Just Launched!  For all of the users out there that are missing using SL Go, or have a slow machine or laptop - your wait is over!

"After months of invitation only testing, we have just opened Bright Canopy to the world. You can start your 14 day free trial right now at www.brightcanopy.com and be streaming Second Life or Open Sim in a browser in less than five minutes." states Bill Glover, Founder of Bright Canopy and Long time Second Life Resident.

"We're going to have a big party next weekend to celebrate, but right now we're here for you 24/7...  Be sure to follow @BrightCanopyApp on twitter for updates and news."

I for one have been awaiting this news for months, since the demise of SLGo.  I have been working in Beta testing of Bright Canopy for the last 2 months on an old lap top. If you can access Chrome, you can use Bright Canopy.  Great News for users that have older machines and experience a bit og lag in high traffic areas such as London City in Second Life.
