I recently tried out Suse Linux and had to use X-Chat.
I was not impressed, but now back in mIRC there is one feature I terribly miss:
The dividing rule between the nick and the text. Here's a screenshot to clarify what I mean: http://xchat.org/files/screenshots/xc208xp.png
This seperator makes reading the actual text much easier and eye-friendly in comparison to mIRC.

is there a slight chance to see this feature in forthcoming versions of mIRC?

thanks in advance
