Conversation works, but has trouble with Umlauts and such.

Ergo: don't want it like that, will delete it.

Conversation is by far the best IRC client. It's too bad the developer isn't supporting it. But it's working under Rosetta on 10.5.5 Intel for me, and yes I am running APE also.

The author's email address has been sending out "Conversation isn't dead" auto-responses for 2 years running. I've given up hope. I know several OS X programmers that offered to port the code to at least make the program Universal, for free, and even without seeking credit (though crediting them would certainly be the right thing to do). But email after email goes unanswered. :-(

Would love to see a UB version of this wonderful program. Colloquy is nice but it's always buggy. Will we see an update, or has this become vaporware?

Noting that this software has not been updated in more than two years, I'd say it has been abandoned.

I've tried various IRC clients for OS X such as Snak and X-Chat Aqua, but Conversation has them beat hands down! Don't bother with anything else. Conversation just works, and is extremely "Mac-like" in its interface/features.

rocks, first thing to do when you launch it is to change it to the 1-window interface.

could use a list of common IRC commands, like /list, etc

What in the hell gives you the right to give this one star? You didn't mention anything about the application. You're pathetic. Go back to the Linux community.

What is Conversation? Basically an IRC App, but yet again, a very specific one.

This nice commenter above has not even slightly understood whats its about, he rather focuses on his personal problems which he projects into the internet.

Anyway, Conversation is as the name implies, a conversiation app - meaning its focused on that. Its an "i" App, and could be called like "iRelay" or what.. it CAN perform more than basic stuff of course, but the app is NOT your most complex IRC agent, its aimed to provide IRC to the cuasual user not necessairly interested in tech stuff, scripts and gadgets.

In other words: You can start using it in a minute, but can dig deeper later, if needed.

Would be nice it supported mIRC scripts as those are quite common
