Chicken of the VNC is a fast, lightweight VNC client for Mac OS X. A VNC client allows one to display and interact with a remote computer screen. In other words, you can use Chicken of the VNC to interact with a remote computer as though it's right next to you.
Chicken features automatic server discovery via Rendezvous; listen mode for navigating through firewalls; an auto-scrolling full-screen mode; keychain integration; CPU performance throttling; remappable, smart unicode keybindings; mouse button emulation and native multibutton support; tons of supported transfer encodings including Tight and ZLib; and customizable connection profiles.

What's new in version 2.0b4
Chicken of the VNC is now a universal binary.
Resolved an issue that caused an "ZLibHex unknown subencoding" error when using ZRLE encoding to connect to an UltraVNC server.
Resolved an issue that caused pasting text to work incorrectly if the text contained repeating characters.
Bonjour server discovery now works properly when the server uses a non-standard port or display number.
Clicking an inactive connection window no longer passes that click through to the server.
