Colloquy - IRC the Macintosh Way

Traditionally, chat clients on the Mac have been anything but glamorous. Colloquy is an advanced IRC, SILC & ICB client which aims to fill this void. By adhering to Mac OS X interface conventions, Colloquy has the look and feel of a quality Mac application.
Colloquy features a beautiful and simple Interface, a buddy list for your irc friends. Support for DCC transfers including resume. PlugIns, mIRC color schemes and so much more.

You can connect to multiple irc servers at the same time.


Pick the look for your conversations.
Colloquy supports scripting in languages such as AppleScript, F-Script, JavaScript, Objective-C and Python. Colloquy shows changes such as mode changes, ban sets, etc. in a human-readable format, rather than showing raw modes.

An official app for iOS was released as well and features support for all IRC commands, a built-in browser, Push notifications and other features.

This looks like an interesting app, but I'll stick with IRSSI.

Multiple irc channels, eh? Not bad, not bad at all...

mac-and-me said...

not channels, servers

mac-and-me said...

ps: multiple channels is normal for a irc client ;)

Love the design on macs but i need to have a computer that can play games and dont cost 1000$ more just becuse it got MAC in it and are made of aluminium..

Daily01 said...

Okay that is useful, will download this on my macbook

mac-and-me said...

Leestander: it can play games well and if you need you can also install Windows and it doesn't cost 1000$ more then a comparable pc so you should get your facts straight.

Wow, it's been a while since I've used IRC. But if I ever get back into it when I finally have a mac, I'll definitely try this out.

Got to love irc. I' using irssi on my linux. No fancy looks but I still love it.

Dave said...

Nice program, more pleasing to use then others I have run on my Macs.

Fred said...

There is a problem however with Colloquy and Lion . . . local time is GMT/UTC, NOT my local time according to my Mac. Which is currently a real pain as all times on the conversation is off.
