LeafChat – an IRC client for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Chat with your friends using popular IRC networks. LeafChat has a friendly, clean interface that doesn’t get in the way of your conversations. Connect to multiple servers at once on the same screen, so that it’s easy to keep up with all your friends. LeafChat is open source.
You can add features to LeafChat by installing ‘plug-ins’, which are pieces of Java software that run inside LeafChat.
– Connect to most standard servers – and, if your friends are in different places, connect to two, three or more at the same time.
– Chat in channels, in message windows, or through direct connection. Send files to others through DCC.
– Automatically log all conversations or just some. Set logs to be deleted after a few weeks, or never. View logs through a simple interface and export them to HTML for your web page.
– Create more complex functionality with built-in scripting based on Java™.
