    What Mac IRC client do you guys suggest? I'm using mIRC on Windows, but I'm not sure which one to use on the Mac.

    Two threads?, or should I say two similar threads among all the others you started today...? ;)

    I use Conversation, but there's no de-facto standard IRC client, so, unlike the IM question, you'd found very different answers to this question if you'd searched a little... :rolleyes:

    Just to help you out

    I use Colloquy. It is a very "mac like" OS X client. People have knocked it in the past for being slow but it have vastly improved in performance on my computer as of late. For the "mac experience" nothing else comes close.

    Here are some Cons about it thought:

    1. No dcc chat.(it does have dcc transfers though)

    2. No Fservers(I love these and this could be done through a third party but requires dcc chat :()

    I use snak... Simply and it works perfectly for my needs. I'd highly recommend it.
