"Simple and straightforward"

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: After using the latest version (2.05) for about a week, I'm making this IRC client my client of choice. I'm doing this for the following reasons:

1. It is FREEWARE (unlike mIRC, which is $20 shareware).

2. The menus an options are simple and intuitive - something many IRC clients (including mIRC, IceChat, Hydrachat, etc.) have trouble with.

3. It's small and compact (2.5 megs).

4. Is extremely simple to set up, and while it has some nice features, isn't bloated with them.

All in all, a great, lightweight IRC client well worth checking out.
