xchat-gnome

A more simple IRC Client

XChat-GNOME is a new frontend to the popular X-Chat IRC client which is designed with the user interface foremost in mind. Historically, the OSS desktop has been steadily improving in usability, accessibility, and general slickness, yet the world of IRC clients has not kept up. With IRC being one of the fundamental methods of communication within the open source community, it is bizzare that this area has been neglected. GNOME's philosophy in terms of user interfaces has been progressing towards presenting the user with few options and sane defaults. While many of the normal X-Chat options will be preserved inside GConf and the xchat config files, only the most common settings will be included in the main user interface. The authors decided that the GTK+ frontend provided excessive customizability without sufficient organization, which lead to clutter and confusion. As such, XChat-GNOME was born, and is gaining popularity as an IRC client for people who care more about chatting than tweaking settings. If anyone is interested in helping out with the project, stop by #xchat-gnome on irc.freenode.net.
