There’s lots of things Irssi does for you automatically that some people like and others just hate. Things like: nick completion, creating new window for newly joined channel, creating queries when msgs/notices are received or when you send a msg, closing queries when it’s been idle for some time, etc…  You can complete lots of things with tab: nicks, commands, command -options, file names, settings, text format names, channels and server names. There’s also an excellent /msg completion that works transparently with multiple IRC networks. Completing channel nicks is also pretty intelligent, it first goes through the people who have talked to you recently, then the people who have talked to anyone recently and only then it fallbacks to rest of the nicks. You can also complete a set of words you’ve specified, for example homepage changes it to your actual home page URL. And much more, a fine new release for MorphOS!
