Jin is a chess client very similar to Blitzin for Windows. In my old iMac G3/233Mhz, 160 Mb(RAM) works a little slower than the main altenative for mac computers: Chessic. In my opinion Chessic is a better choice for playing internet chess, and offers a better integration with MacOS X.
Jin offers a very practical way of automate commands when playing at Internet Chess Club, but Chessic gives you the opportunity of easily analyze games with Crafty engine.
