At work we have an in-house chat system using CUPC. Does anyone else out there use this? There are a few things I do not like about this client:
- Where's the chat log? If I close the window, I have no way of getting my conversation back.
- Tabbed interface? That would be nice. I hate having multiple chat windows up, having to arrange them around my desktop as more people start talking to me.
- I don't like that I have to use this one-off application for particular this protocol when other chat clients will handle 99% of the other protocols I use.
Tell me: Is the protocol an open standard for which other applications have support? (pidgin, adium, digsby, etc.) If not, can I overcome these issues from within CUPC? Perhaps there are newer versions of the client that overcome these issues.
