AkwaIRC is written using Objective-C language and Apple's Cocoa APIs *only*. That's to say, it's designed for Mac OS X. Therefore, AkwaIRC provides numerous options like applying a transparency level to your windows when the application is not active. But this is just a little example. The userlist, small, elegant and fast, gives you all the information you need about your current channel's users (their nickname, user and hostnames, their status on the channel : operator, voice and on the network : irc-operator, away, available ...) AkwaIRC can handle as many sockets as you want at the same time.
What's New
Version 1.72 adds the following:
  • Introducing a new interface mode : tabbed-chatting
  • Fixed major interface inconsistencies
  • Better behaviour when resizing windows
Requirements
PPC, Mac OS X 10.1 or later

The developer moved on to Linkinus, which is one of the best IRC clients around.

I have this running fine on OS X 10.4.9 but on a G3. Perhaps it was never compiled properly for G4s?
Anyway the website domain is no longer registered, so I think this is abandonware. Too bad, it looked promising.

AkwaIRC can handle as many sockets as you want at the same time. Indeed, if you want to connect to 25 IRC servers, or even more, that's definitely the easiest thing on earth. Just click the Edit button and configure your connection preferences using the Sets Manager. Moreover, you can use the preferences to choose which colors you want AkwaIRC to display when such or such an event occurs on the IRC. Thanks to Quartz, you can - obviously - prefers to chat in a channel with a transparent background :-) One of the latest functions I implemented is an auto-update method which checks, each time you start Akwa, whether a new version has been released and uploaded to our website or not. You're sure to be up-to-date ;) Heh...
