    Conversation is a new one that's easy to use.

    There's the (MRChat( MacRumors one - but that only connects you to the macrumors channel.

    all can be found at versiontracker.

    X-Chat is a good one (, as is Conversation (VersionTracker). Conversation doesn't have any text commands and it feels rather a lot like iChat. X-Chat uses text commands.

    Searched Virsiontracker, but no luck.
    Searched Google and found version 1, downloadable from macrumors.
    I've had people ask where I got version 2.0.1, but I can never find a URL. Also when checking my about MRChat menu, all I see is v.1. hmm

    Is there any logic for this, are they one and the same, am I just over complicating things? arn?

    The source of MRChat I have is also 2.0.1, but I guess the original developers forgot to change the About... box.

    I use Xchat Aqua, but I would not recommend it if you don't allready IRC. It's not user friendly, and the tips are not in english, since it's a port from the Linux world.

    Conversation seems very nice for beginners.
