jIRCii is a powerful Mac OS X Internet Relay Chat client. jIRCii is scriptable (with many available on the website). The focus is to provide a UNIX console client experience with the advantages of a solid GUI. Some call it the closest thing to mIRC on MacOS X. Features include DCC file transfers, IRC over SSL support, multiple server connections, and over 75 built-in commands.
