Hey everyone,

I've been looking for a while for a good (free) irc client for OS X that's universal or intel. I'm using x-chat aqua (intel) right now, which I'm used to and all, but not as mac-like as it could be, and definitely not taking advantage of any OS X feature an IRC client might use.

Most other clients I've tried* have trouble displaying the ban list, exceptions, seeing a users /whois info, etc. X-chat turned out to be the best, but I'm curious to know if there's a better option out there..

Thanks!



Patrix.


* I forget the names, but most clients on versiontracker.com lol.

iuhn crap. So I try to see the banlist with the channel information, and I only see ONE ban. There's like 20. If I look in the console after typing /mode #channel +b ... I see there's lots of bans, I see who made them and when they were made, but I don't see the actual hostmask that is banned.

That's why I left Colloquy last time, I guess. argh.

edit: nevermin that.. the ban list is in the inspector now. weird!
