"Highjacks with confirmation dialogs"
Version: IceChat IRC Client 7.70
Free, colorful, free!
Does not close on command, closing the dialogs makes it stay open, dialogs cannot be disabled. Windows does not shut down with this program open!
It overrides basic windows commands, and it is often necessary to go into the task manager, just to close the damn thing! Any method of closing, it brings up text windows, and ignores clicks to close and Alt+F4 to close. Closing the test window it bring up, makes it think you want it to stay open...
Whoever designed this, thank you for your effort... But this thing is nearly an annoying as itunes, with their "helper", their "attempts to install a half dozen unrelated apple programs, and hidden autoupdater that cannot be disabled from starting with the system.

Version: IceChat IRC Client 7.70
Colored themes you can NOT disable, is very distracting.
I needed a free IRC client in a hurry, so I came here, found IceChat. After installing I spent about 15 minutes digging through the preferences to turn off the horrible window themes.
I even tried to force Win7 to disable all themes and composition for the app to no avail. The themes are built into the client itself and you cannot turn them off.
Why? This isn't AOL, and it's not 1998.
Uninstalled, found another free client.
