Meez Avatar is a lightweight Yahoo! widget built specifically for helping you personalize your desktop with a 3D avatar.
The widget sports a clean and straightforward layout that gives users the possibility to set up the dedicated parameters with just a few clicks.
Meez Avatar comes packed with several configuration settings of its own that allow users to customize the appearance of the 3D characters in terms of hairstyles, clothing, accessories, tattoos, and piercings. The 3D characters are animated, so they can go shopping, strum a guitar, or just lounge on the couch.
Additionally, you can give a name for the 3D characters.
Other options offered by the Yahoo! environment give you the possibility to prevent the windows from being dragged, set the opacity level, and ignore mouse events. You can also make the program stay on top of other applications, and this proves to pretty useful, especially when dealing with multiple tools at the same time.
During our testing we have noticed that the widget displays good image quality and no errors showed up throughout the entire process.
As it would be expected from such a small utility, it manages to remain light on the system resources, so it doesn’t burden the overall performance of the computer, nor interfere with other programs’ functionality.
To sum things up, Meez Avatar offers a simple software solution when it comes to animating your desktop activity. It can be easily configured and installed by all types of users, regardless of their experience level.
