Ok, after some personal computer issues (now solved!), CHAD is much more stable. Version 1.0.89 is now working pretty good. Undo/Redo in the !draw window isn’t perfect yet though. Now that my computer issues have been solved, I’ll get to that… yep. I will. The best thing is, I’ve changed all the drop down menus to buttons! Very much easier to navigate channels and all windows in general.
BTW, until ALL current CHAD issues are finalized, the version number reflects the “alpha” status. When CHAD goes “beta” it will be 1.1.xx in the version number instead of the current 1.0.xx numbers.
At any rate, it *does* work and makes an easier alternative to mIrc and some of the other mainstream IRC clients (xchat, etc)… especially if you’re new to IRC. mIrc contains SO much that it might be a little tough to navigate whereas CHAD is very simple! I haven’t actually tried it on any other IRC networks, so for now, stick to Freenode. You don’t actually have a choice right now anyway. Freenode is VERY stable and only seldom has netsplits.
Visit the Download page (or the IRC Chat page), and download/install it today!
