Also in the Starting With E and Ending With a Version Number department, here are two IRC clients that are strikingly similar … and yet purportedly different.
Just watching those quick gifs probably isn’t enough to make a distinction. A brief spin past the home page isn’t much help either; I couldn’t find a page labeled “What’s the difference between epic4 and epic5?”
I do see, however, that epic4 and 5 are described as “scriptable,” and some scripts are supposedly only workable on one version or another.
So which version you pick might depend on which script you want to employ. I haven’t tested any scripts personally; you can do that and tell me what’s good.
And I don’t use chat enough to really know what’s a good client and what’s a great client. I use irssi on most machines, not because it’s awesome but because it’s what I’m used to.
So if epicX is better, for whatever reason, cue me in. Just remember I’m a casual user. 🙂
