Description

Textual is the world's most popular application for interacting with Internet Relay Chat (IRC) chatrooms on OS X.

First appearing in 2010, Textual has since evolved and matured into the top IRC client for OS X; relied on and trusted by thousands of people.

Beautiful Interface
• Textual includes two elegantly designed light and dark variants of the user interface to match all tastes. The user interface itself has been refined all the way down to the very last pixel. Everything has a place and a purpose and nothing is in the way to create clutter.

Powerful, yet lightweight
• Textual supports very powerful modern technologies such as native IPv6, direct client-to-client file transfers, the latest IRCv3 specifications, client-side certificate authentication, and much, much more in a lightweight, easy to navigate, clutter free environment.

Privacy is valued
• Textual values your privacy. Sensitive information such as passwords are maintained within the OS X keychain which is encrypted. Additionally, text based encryption with automatic key-exchange using industry proven standards is available. Furthermore, all source code is publicly available for auditing at any time.

Customizable
• Textual provides extensive theming support by leveraging technologies such as HTML 5, CSS 3, and JavaScript. Also included is the ability to create alias commands using scripts written in AppleScript, Ruby, Python, Perl, or PHP. For advanced users, it is possible to write plugins in Swift or Objective-C that have unlimited access to the entire codebase of Textual.

Textual also includes…

• Inline nickname colorization
• Rich array of keyboard shortcuts
• iCloud support for syncing connections and preferences
• Address Book for tracking when friends are online & offline
• Powerful, customizable, rule-based ignore matching
• Inline media embedding (Show images inline with chat)
