Smuxi Comments

Wastes a lot of screen space

Negative Comment by blackboard
about Smuxi Nov 2013

It's a nice idea, but the GUI wastes so much screenspace that it was unusable for me. Quassel is very similar, but has a MUCH more efficient layout that is fully customizable, and wastes much less screen space. However, Quassel uses more RAM.

I like smuxi. It's easy to use and has common translations included. I have user experience on Windows and Linux with it and on both OS smuxi's working fine. If you like using IRC and twitter, I recommend you to taste it!
