GrowliChat is never running when I go to the preference pane. If you have to keep turning it on, then I consider that the software doesn't work. Also, I'm puzzled by the concept of donationware that you have to pay for if you don't waqnt to be nagged. Shareware is designed to nag you or not work until you pay for it. Seems to me that this is SHAREWARE MASQUERADING AS SOMETHING ELSE.
