When playing on my macbook the GoPanda2 chews up CPU cycles like a beast, causing the hiss of the fan to kick in after a few minutes. There are other things I could gripe about it, but they are minor. The CPU hog makes me want to choose something else - does anyone have any suggestions?

I tried the old free version of that, but found it unusable - too many disconnections, very bad lag when trying to navigate the game tree in observed games.

Hi Java,

While you're searching for another client, also consider to contact Benjamin --
he's quite responsive to my feedback to him about GoPanda2 ( on OSX and WinTel ).

If GoPanda2 is hogging the CPU, it seems a bug ( or two ). If it's easy for him to reproduce,
they'll probably fix it ( in a future release ). :)

Sadly, I can't second that recommendation -- I've found it to be very buggy, sometimes even failing to display stones, or switching to a single color (every stone played is White, for example). Sad, because I really liked it, and found to be the most "Mac-like" out of all the Go apps out there.
