Works real nice. - This IRC client is great. Works real nice, and it has all the features the average IRC user will need. Might not be the prettiest, but (1) it works the best out of all clients; and (2) you can download themes for it from online.

Version 2.39
Review by AppAddictNinja

No DCC Chat? Not full featured? - I spent a long time trying to figure out what I was doing wrong when trying to connect to a server (or whatever the heck it's called in IRC) and kept repeating the same steps only to discover that DCC is not supported or I couldn't figure out how to get it to work. I did the same steps in a different application and no problem. I was following the right steps to connect, but since LimeChat doesn't support DCC I was stuck. Please add DCC chat. I enjoy LimeChat so much more than the other application I'm using, but can't use it because it lacks DCC chat.

Version 2.47
Review by The Virtual One

probably the best choice - I just ugraded from 4.42 to 4.47, and it appear to have changed the prefs files, my server list reverted to what it was over a yeara go and all my passwords were gone. Thankfully I kept a copy of the old app, was able to launch it. It doesn't let you see your passwords though so got them out of my keychain. Not sure why 4.47 doesn't see them in my keychain. Keychain entries DO NOT provide server name, just a hash, leaving "server" as limechat, that's not helpful. But I was able to match them up. Please record server IP in keychain entries (in addition to hash as you are now) and also give me a check box I can tick to view the password in the app. Also fix your server migration code. Other issues (may be fixed in 4.47?) include slowdown as scrollbacks get bigger after weeks of being connected, and I've also caught it using over 40 gb of ran on a few occasions when it went loopy. Needs a way to throttle or stagger auto join, if you have too many channels auto connect the server may think you are fooding, I get 1/2 my channels triggering me to #overflow on freenode, have to join them one at a time manually after I login. Despite all that though, it's still the best IRC client I've found for the mac.
