graphical IRC client
  4 reviews

Smuxi is an irssi-inspired, flexible, user-friendly and cross-platform IRC client for sophisticated users, targeting the GNOME desktop.

Smuxi is based on the client-server model: The core application (engine) can be placed onto a server which is connected to the Internet around-the-clock; one or more frontends then connect to the core. This way, the connection to IRC can be kept up even when all frontends have been closed. The combination of screen and irssi served as example for this architecture.

Smuxi also supports the regular single application mode. This behaves like a typical IRC client; it doesn't need separate core management and utilizes a local engine that is used by the local frontend client.

This is a metapackage which depends on the default flavor of Smuxi, which is the GNOME frontend with Twitter and enhanced IRC support.

I'm on the GNOME frontend (On Cinnamon) and it looks the best out of any IRC client I've tried! However, if you are an absolute beginner to IRC I would recommend Srain
