Colloquy is a free and very easy-to-use Internet Relay Chat (IRC) client that is full of the features that are just begging to be used both by users who have little to none technical knowledge with this chat protocol standard and with professionals who require stable, fast and versatile solution for their work needs. It’s able to work in multiple window interface environment, supports multiple server connections, multicolored text, word identification and highlighting, all most popular font styles (bold, italic, underlined), full support for DCC file transfer (pausing, resuming, drag & drop file transfer), and more.
Even though IRC chat clients are mostly trying to emulate the look and feel of mIRC, one of the most popular chat clients in the modern history of internet, developers of Colloquy for Mac have decided to spice things up. Their interface is much more colorful, and listing of servers, rooms and people are listed on the bard on the left side on the screen, with chat room taking majority the space in the right of it. Dashboard features much more colors that average IRC client, with easy access to tools for changing visual Style of the app, Emoticons, Encoding, and management of marked text on the top of the app. There users can also find search engine that will easily locate anything in the current chat stream.
