My name is Kenneth and I write cool Mac and iPhone software. This is my personal weblog where I post about stuff I find interesting. I usually write about Mac development, the business of shareware and the Mac community in general.read more →
Coolloquy, the last Linkinus style you’ll ever need.
If you’re like me, you probably are a heavy IRC user. One thing that lacks on OSX is a good mac-like but powerful IRC client. Not anymore. With Linkinus, there now is a mac client that is both powerful and user friendly.
So what’s the catch? The catch is that the styles it ships with are either not practical, or really really ugly. The default style uses so much space in the window that no more than 10 lines can be seen at once unless the window is as big as half a decent-sized screen. The other good-looking theme is blurred green on blurred black… Looks nice but so not readable (I know green-on-black works nice in a Terminal window, but 1. this is not Terminal.app and 2. it’s all kinda blurred and unreadable).
Colloquy has a nice user-friendly default style, and Linkinus is really powerful (staying connected with app closed, bouncer support, and all the rest). Which to choose, the user-friendliness or the power feature?
Both! I have ported Colloquy’s stylish style for Linkinus.Update: Coolloquy now supports Emoticons! (Only in smiley version, we’ve noticed that it breaks links … normal version is without smiley again)
