When I set the tabs to be at the top or bottom I cannot see the most recent msgs, when I set it to either side msgs display properly. Other than that still a good IRC client, just wish it wasn't MAS only.

The version of Aqua posted below by Matthew Green seems to work properly on Snow Leopard with the tabs on top. Good riddance Azure and MAS.

thankfully it implements a tabs column on the left of the window now too

I just downloaded the newer version. I had downloaded x-chat aqua sometime last year but I figured I'd update. Ok, I am not that talented with computers, and I require a little assistance. I love x-chat aqua, but I have no idea how to work scripts. I tried to write one before but, of course, I have no idea what I am doing. I need a cut script so that when I type out a paragraph it doesn't just cut off the end and not post it. If anyone could provide me with a cut script for x-chat aqua on the mac and tell me how to implement it I would greatly appreciate it. thanks!

Thanks. I've been waiting for a UB version of this ever since I got a MacBook.

Why can't I change the left / right tab shortcuts using the Keyboard preference pane of OSX 10.3.9? This means the tabbed browsing uses different shortcuts and I can't change them.. effectively rendering my tab buttons on the mouse useless for this one app. It sounds minor but it is the most obnoxious and irritating thing ever!

I have loads of work to do, and no time to do it all, so I'm going to have to keep this rather short. X-Chat Aqua is *the best* IRC applicaton for OS X... one might even be tempted to argue that it's the best in the world.

While I wouldn't call it your grandmother's IRC client -- haha... sorry, funny image -- however, if you actually know IRC, you'll need less than a day with this program to arrive at this conclusion for yourself.

The bottom line is that, as of Jan 2006, there is simply no better IRC client available for OS X than this one.

I don't like how they've made the tabs blue now, disregarding whether or not your color theme is set to aqua or silver. Is there some way to change this that I don't know about?

The true "Whats new" list doesn't show what is new from 0.14, only 0.15.0.

Lots of changes have been made, and a list is on the Sourceforge website.

Its a great program and its easy to use, I can't compare it to other IRC programs because I haven't used them, however, I seem to get this weird problem. I have high-speed cable and I for some reason get chat lag. Now, I know this isn't unheard of, but it just seems really, really, weird. When I use programs like iChat or AdiumX I get no lag at all. Any tips or anyone with problems like this?
