Still the 2nd best FIBS client.
JavaFIBS is much more stable.

Excellent! Sure the best client for FIBS : no crash at all, perfectly stable, really good-looking, simple & easy...

If the board should be re-sizable, this application would be perfect (i don't understand why it's called "beta")

Constantly crashing on login. Have reinstalled both versions again and again, and still crashes! Definitely a big problem for many users at the moment.

Thank you for providing a decent fibs client. It is a tad slow, not very responsive. Please provide auto-login on launch. All in all, a decent client. Thank goodness this is not java based! I just encounter a strangeness which might be due to fibs. It would not let me finish the game on my last move, claiming I needed to do two moves before clicking off!

Pretty good. The look is great & very easy to use.
Couple of things.
Double click on the dice doesn't always roll the dice ditto with moving the pieces.
But on the whole a good programme especially as it's, IIRC, the only one for OSX and it's free.
Thank you.

If you download cocoafibs 0.5 and get the message that the beta has expired, just open CocoaFIBS with a hex editor ( i.e. http://hexedit.sourceforge.net/ ). Find the two hex instances of "32 30 30 37" and replace the string with "32 30 39 39". This will keep the program running until 2099.
