I'll need to know how to work IRC. What is best for OS X and for ease of use?
Well the easiest to use IRC client would be Fire
Thats the one I use most of the time
An advanced IRC client with many features is Ircle
http://www.ircle.com/ But it isn't hard to use in my opinion.
For a web based client, which is esay to use and set up (change some settings and drop it int your CGI-Executables folder in the webserver folder)
Unless I'm very much mistaken, there's no way iChat will work with IRC.
Of course ichat won't work with IRC !
It's not the same network, and ichat only use AIM.
For IRC help :
The most powerfull IRC client :
hmm...I liked bitchX...you can get it from the fink package manager...you might want to know how to use that kinda stuff first though...bitchx.org for more info.
Fire is too buggy for me, I like snak, look for it on version tracker.
in OS X i always used bitchx, but then i found X-Chat Aqua. it's a port of the unix app and it brings with it a great deal of ease of use and functionality.
really, it's good! http://xchataqua.sourceforge.net/
I just started using a irc program called iRC from version tracker. It seems to be the best one that I've found. I love mIRC for windows, and this seemed to be a good alternative. If only I could find some more plugins for it and I'd be set
I absolutely ADORE my new 17" imac
why does this thread keep getting resurrected, kind weird.
anyway, the only good thing about mirc, and it's a pretty big thing is it's total scriptability. scripts make mIrc a really powerful piece of software. amazing really. but by itself, it was really just a hunk of junk.
i checked out iRC and it was not particulrly great. give X-Chat aqua a try, you might like it.
