My Reviews

ChatZilla

Good IRC client Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This was my first IRC client. It has definitely been a good, solid program.

It has everything I'd expect from an IRC client, and the fact that it's multi-platform means that I get a unified experience, no matter whether I'm booted into Windows or Linux.

It's suitable for beginners, but has a rich enough feature set for more experienced chatters. The settings pages are easy to navigate, and offer plenty of easily changeable options.

Overall, this has definitely set the bar for IRC clients for me. There are probably few IRC clients, much less any open-source ones, that can rival this one's quality and ease-of-use.
I would definitely recommend this to anybody who is looking to start using IRC, looking for a better client, or just got bored of Skype and wants a new chat program.

HTML Desktop Notifications

Works like magic Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This worked great! I was actually quite surprised that Google let any browser use Desktop Notifications; I expected that it would simply refuse to work on other browsers. (although I suppose that some of this praise goes to Google...)

I dabble a bit in HTML, and I look forward to experimenting with the Desktop Notifications.

NASA Night Launch

Wonderful! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was looking for a dark theme that wasn't too extravagant or buggy. I tried the GlowyGold and FT Deep Dark/Graphite, among others, but all were fairly buggy. This was exactly what I was looking for. Thank you.
I do have one problem, however: when I use Ubuntu, the tabs still look exactly the same as on Windows. This is a very minor annoyance (it isn't a crippling error or anything,) but would it be feasible for you to release a .zip file containing some alternate tab sprites? I have a fairly good idea of how to customize themes...

P.S., I have ported this theme to Chrome/Chromium and sent my port to the developer. Expect to see it on those browsers soon (assuming that he decides to publish it.)
