Fixation is a freeware TCP client for the Internet Chess Club (ICC), Free Internet Chess Server (FICS), US Chess Live (USCL) and chess.net (limited support). Source code is available from the Fixation home page. Version 2.1.1 addresses the following:
"Fixation is simply the best FICS interface available for the Mac. Happily, it's also perfectly adequate."
"I have been using Fixation for several years. All around it is the best Macintosh ICS Chess Client out there. It is simple and easy to use with a good intuitive interface."
"I have been playing on FICS for several years now, starting out first with Smart Chess and a couple other clients I tried for a short time, and finally found Fixation. Great program, sure to make the average Internet chess-playing PC user green with envy. Try the rest, then use the best."

Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.
Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.
These are applications that are newer and of potential interest, but which I haven't yet selected for permanent inclusion. Have a look, and let me know if you think they deserve to be part of the permanent collection!
