Hi All! I'm a proud new 12" PB owner who has just made the swap from PC (well at least until he can afford a state of the art gaming PC in a couple of years time! ) I love my new powerbook, but I was wondering what IRC client people recommend? I used mIRC on the PC so something similar would be best
Thanks!

welcome aboard. Snak is really good if you want to drop $20 bucks for it. If not i use Colloquy and it's free. Its actually a really nice irc that can actually do everything like dling and connecting to whatever server you want. Taker easy

XChat Aqua or colloquy, unless you're a terminal person and then it'd be irssi.

I personally like iRC better than xchat (old non-aqua version of xchat though). It felt a little more like mIRC.

I too am a pc convert who used to love mIrc. I never found a osX client that was clean and simple untill Conversation. The eary versions had some nagging issues but I still found it better than the others. There's a new 2.0 beta that is about perfict. Have a look.

Oh, and it's free, but you may find you want to donate some $$ after using it!
