IRC client in Thunderbird
wow, i must say, chapeau!

wise people use thunderbird already to read their email.
but the people from thunderbird added a nice feature to it: an irc client.

https://support.mozillamessaging.com/sv-...derbird-15

it is by far the easiest client i have seen sofar.
joining/loging on cant be made more easy, i think.

most common commands used in irc work.

why i post this?
well, it seems to me there are plenty of people who still have issues
with their clients.

for those, give it a try.
ive been gladly surprised by this client.

Awesome! If you like to keep your system slim, this could be helpful ...and don't forget that Thunderbird is cross platform too!

RE: IRC client in Thunderbird
yeah, I noticed that before (not sure when) and I wrote it in main chan... havent tried it tho...
(but I'm satisfied with pidgin - which is multiplatform too :-P - and works with icq, irc, jabber and many others Smile )

RE: IRC client in Thunderbird
I also like Pidgin, and set my wife's computer up to use it. The problem for me is, there is no command history (you cannot up arrow to retrieve previously entered lines). Also, it isn't so friendly when changing nicks: /nick MyNewNick. When I try to do this, it still shows the old nick in the nicklist, but everyone else in the room sees the new nick. Maybe its better at these function in Linux, I don't know, we are using it on a Windows XP machine.

RE: IRC client in Thunderbird
yeah, there are bugs in irc, thats true... but i dont care much about them, because i dont use much nick-changing
and I remember there was/is a bug that sometimes I couldnt see the right rights of the ppl in the list Smile but it is not a big prob for me...
for me the main reason, why I use it is, that I use 2 jabber accounts (with a few MUC, some of them permanently logged in), 1 icq and 3 irc Smile just sad that skype is closed source Sad

RE: IRC client in Thunderbird
ive noticed as i updated thunderbird that it has an irc client but didnt tried it until bonfire told about it in irc.
i have to say it is a very simple gui. i reckon i would use it if i wouldnt have got used ice chat.
they only could add some chanop command 'buttons' or contect menus or autoperform etc (could be that thunderbird has this features, i havent explored them)
