Installation runs flawlessly, connecting runs flawlessly, customization of the colors and background runs flawlessly, and there are no major graphical glitches. Pretty much all that is tested works, except for the few things noted below. The client "feels" like it was natively written for Linux, and is definitely usable (it even provides better performance than native clients like XChat). Even mouse gestures work.
What does not
There is one minor graphical glitch: when moving over a link the hand cursor has an offset, meaning it can be hard to see what link you are pointing at. It's easy to get used to this. The right-click menus do not work, but mouse gestures can be used to reach the same goal. When initiating a DCC transfer the client crashes and just disappears.
What was not tested
I'd like to give this a Platinum rating (as I have not found anything that prevents me from working with it) however I realize that the fact DCC transfers do not work may be a problem for some, which is why I have given it a Silver rating (I have not been able to fix this with configuration changes yet). I can highly recommend this client, even under Linux; whereas XChat (and several other clients) have given me trouble when in many rooms or servers, this client handles it all flawlessly, even under Wine.
