Loqui gtk irc client.

I really like the way it scrolls all the channels your logged into in the main window "Common Buffer". The fact it's light using only about 8MB loaded and Gpl'd  If I was being picky I'd like the channel list on the left.

IRC Client for Gtk2
Loqui is a IRC Client that has following features:
 - Connect to multiple servers
 - The view that outputs all messages on other channels (call "Common Buffer")
 - Window has 4-views (Message of the current channel, nick list, channel list, "Common Buffer")
 - Multi-protocols (beta)
