IRC Client, Snak, Updated

Kent Sorensen has updated his popular IRC chat client, Snak, to version 4.6.4. Snak is a program that allows users to easily join in any of the thousands of Internet Relay Chat areas, and the latest version adds increased stability when used with Mac OS X. According to Mr. Sorensen:

Snak is a full featured IRC client with some unique and very useful features. Version 4.6.4 of the program has been released.

This version includes fixes for two OS X crashes, and takes care of a problem in the handling of banlist items on IRCNet and other networks. One of the OS X crashes could happen randomly during normal use, and the other occurred when you typed /dcc get without further arguments.

An IRC client will let you participate in discussions in virtual meeting rooms on the Internet. There are thousands of meeting rooms full of people from all over the world.

What is an IRC client?
An IRC Client is a program that will let you participate in discussions in Internet Relay Chat channels. IRC is a service that uses the Internet to connect a large number of servers all over the world. Individuals then connect to a nearby server with the help of a client program like Snak and join one or more of the thousands of channels that are available.

At any given time the largest of the IRC networks may have as many as 35.000 participants and almost anyone can find a channel that talks about a topic that is of interest to that particular person.

Snak is available for US$20. You can find more information at the Snak Web site.
