Works fantastic simple and easy to use

This is a fantastic simple and easy to use client for IRC.

It comes loaded with SASL support and everything is VERY simple to set up.

I don’t get any lag when posting messages to channels like I have in other IRC clients.

I recommend this program to anyone that wants a simple working IRC client that looks nice and operates smoothly on OS X.

Kudos to the developers keep up the great work, this product is definitely worth spending the $5.00 on.
