MacIrssi Alternatives

    MacIrssi is described as 'Originally created by Nils Hjelte, the Cocoa port of Irssi has recently fallen out of development and become website-less. Having aquired a copy of the source from Nils, this branch contains my gradual "improvements" to the original 0.8.2 release of MacIrssi' and is an app in the Social & Communications category. There are nine alternatives to MacIrssi for a variety of platforms, including Mac, Windows, Linux, Online / Web-based and iPhone. The best alternative is mIRC. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try Quassel IRC or Mibbit. Other great apps like MacIrssi are Textual (Paid), Chatzilla (Free, Open Source), LimeChat (Free, Open Source) and Colloquy (Free, Open Source).
