When launching Fold.it client, when using multiple clients, only the primary (first in) client can have live chat and receive new recipe downloads. Use a graphic to show that if Fold.it client is primary or not. I suggest using a chain link graphic in Chat area.

If chat is not live, the only way of continuing to use client and chat is through the use of IRC and downloading new recipes cannot be done at all. These shortcomings are not obvious when you first launch client and the only way to know if this is the case is to test. A graphic chain link would save time and avoid frustrations.

Karstenw suggests removing chat altogether if not available. That's probably more work, though not a bad idea.

As the chat selectors in later clients are greyed out it is fairly obvious that they are not available, also you can still download recipes, they will become available in the later clients if they are closed and reopened. So you can still leave a first client running a script and download recipes.
