Filter: the new ignore Someone's getting on your nerves? Choose to ignore private or public messages and you'll never see a message from that person ever again. But filters are not only for messages. You can also choose to toggle embedded media, join/part/quit messages, file transfers and much more.
Media: right within your favorite chat rooms Linkinus can automatically embed media content within channels on a per-user or per-network basis. Supported services include Flickr, YouTube, Vimeo, Google Video, College Humor, Revision 3, and many more. Linkinus can also automatically expand shortened URLs.
Log Viewer Want to view past conversations? The log viewer is a click away at all times. Type a keyword and voilà, logs are filtered by content. For your privacy, enable or disable logging on a per-channel.
Identities: it's you, on IRC Save your preferred and alternate nicknames in a reusable fashion. And if you provide password credentials, Linkinus will automatically authenticate to NickServ, NickOP, Q, X, G, SrvAuth and AuthServ.
Special messages: Highlights & Stars IRC can be overwhelming, but with Linkinus you'll never miss an important message. Linkinus uses static highlights, dynamic highlights and PCRE regexps to determine which messages are important to you. You can also decide to bookmark ('star') messages manually.
Drastically improved security Not only does Linkinus support Blowfish encryption, key exchange and SSL certificates, it also provides feedback to keep you informed of any changes in security: a remote certificate has become invalid? A server is not trusted anymore? Someone is sending unencrypted messages in a Blowfish channel? You'll know it. When your session is secured, Linkinus still provides instant visual feedback.
Alerts & Notifications Want to focus on work yet remain available if someone needs you on IRC? Quit Linkinus. Linkinus Agent will let you know when someone is trying to get your attention.
