Mac Games Rating sleator (6/6/2006 - version 2.1)
Danny Sleator (founder of the ICC) is my uncle!!!
Mac Games Rating oberon (10/8/2002 - version 1.1.4)
This is a high quality client for ICC. That given, Fixation (available at ) is far superior. While chessic is the slightly prettier client, Fixation's list of extra features is too long to list. The major ones, however, include: -Support for many wilds including bughouse -Support for many, many chess servers (not just ICC) -Free week account support on ICC So while I can recommend this as a good product, the competition is significantly better (and just as free!) --oberon
