Black Dragon is MY Viewer, i decide which feature i want to add and which to remove, i share this Viewer to show the world that user base size is not important, i do rate quality by effort, thought and love put into the project, not some rough estimated numbers. I consider feature requests only if i you can name proper valid reasons i can agree on. It is my (unpaid) time i'm putting into this project, i'm not here to cater to every Joe's desires.

Black Dragon Viewer - Update "Get Chromed"

Long overdue update that introduces the Chromium Embedded Framework (HTML5 , WebGL and so on on prims and your internal browser)

Also a bugfix for chiclets not appearing as well as a merge to the latest LL Release and a revamp of the display preferences, i'll need feedback on that. So tell me what you think.

Display pref options now has a small |!| if the option is known to cause performance issues or other problems as well as a blue badge to show that this checkbox represents the default "Ultra" setting.


Fixed: German CEF string in About floater.
Fixed: Chiclet bar not appearing.
Changed: Layout and appearance of the chiclet bar.
Changed: Display Preferences layout, added expandable tabs and default/warning icons to widgets.
Removed: Commented out Keybind Preferences.
Merge with Chromium Embedded Framework.
Merge with Release.


  1. Uh Oh...now we can have a viewer within the viewer.

  2. Have you checked out New World Notes article showing Black Dragon being used to demo a version that allows the internal browser to run a second instance of Black Dragon within it ?

  3. So, how long before we can run Black Dragon directly from our Browser (assuming that it can be run on WebGL like in the demo mentioned above) ???

    1. Never, unless someone ports it over to WebGL or uses the Viewer via steaming.
