Re: best free IRC client?

Well, it depends on personal taste. mIRC is the most popular one, others are XChat, Klient, HydraIRC and KVIrc. Then there is Miranda, Trillian and Gaim, which handles most IM protocols. There is also a built in IRC client in Opera, and a plugin for Fx(chatzilla).

I have tried them all, and I prefer http://www.kvirc.net/img/banners/cle08.png. After a bit of customization you can have it exactly like you wan't. You can get the latest version here

Re: best free IRC client?

I use Miranda, it is nice if you also use icq/msn etc.
it's based on plugins so you have to do some tweaking to get it right.

Yes, it's pretty easy to understand everything. It might be a little harder then other clients in the beginning, but when you get familiar with the program, it's offers more options. Plus, it's open source.

I use ChatZilla... I use Pidgin for my IMs, I think it has an IRC built in, but I don't use it, so IDK if it's any good.

I'm not a heavy irc user so not sure if it would suit but pidgin comes pre-installed with ubuntu and its always done what ive wanted to do.

Re: best free IRC client?

For free chatting only, I've really come to like Opera's built in client, but that's because I'm already browsing with Opera.

For file transfers I've only ever used mIRC. However, as I'm not transferring files via IRC any more, Opera's text looks a lot better than the text in mIRC so I'm pretty much using Opera exclusively.

Re: best free IRC client?

I have used the Klient which is most wonderful experience for me . I would like to say that It is easily understandable for me .Although I have not used MIRC but I would say that it is also good .
