Whats the best 1 out??
Only ever used Mirc but wana start using it again an wondered which 1
i use hydrairc, in the past i have used mirc/x-chat/chatzilla
i also use hydrairc
i always tell people to at least give Xchat a try... you'l be surprised
yeah x-chat is quite popular
it is very good, i use xchat on my slackware box and xchat-aqua on my iBook
Thx i'll have a look at both of them
IRC client it complete personal chose ... no "best" one
i agree, but xchat is always worth a try ;P
Anything that isn't mIRC
Can back-up what's been suggested already though..
HydraIRC (www) is a very nice client, written natively for Win32 aswell. It's quite un-finished at the moment though, but of course it can only get better.
X-Chat www) is a more established client. There aren't as many features as some other clients, but basically, I refuse to use anything else because I like it that much
mIRC alone isn't bad if your a windows user ... its the "scripts" that give mIRC a very very bad name
The fact it's $20.00 for something many other clients manage to do for free, and in most cases, do better, has always put me off.
at least its for something legit unlike ppl that paid for Kazaa
Anyone who paid for KaZaA is an eejit.
agreed but it still happens :/
Another vote for X-Chat, but HydraIRC is very nice too
me no pay 20 dolla for mirc. have always used it for free :]
We don't discuss or condone warez here.
xchat is teh win
I've always liked mIRC. There are decent scripts for it, and it isn't very hard to customize for yourself. I also use Xchat on Debian ... haven't gotten used to it, but it's working great. Plugins aren't very plentiful though.
Oh yeah, hydrairc looks sweet. I might give it out a try. If it wasn't for my huge mIRC log files that have been around for years, I'd might be convince to leave mIRC altogether.
