    mIRC is superior in all regards.

    True dat.

    With that said tho my 600mb mIRC install (Scripts/Sounds :) ) is sitting redundant and I'm using X-Chat for the time being. Does the job really nicely, everything is custamisable, but theres a lack of scripts (which no-one NEEDS anyway, not the point tho...) as it's really a ported nix client.
    Still, it works nice, definately my 2nd favourite to mIRC.

    I use BítchX now and then when i can be bothered to login to my shell, it just disagrees with multi-servers now and then, so i stick with a nice local windows GUI app :)

    Yeah, it's handy :D
    The fact you can re-attach to an active irc session from virtually anywhere is great.

    mIRC with Acidmax is by far the best IRC client you can get.
    www.mirc.com (mIRC)
    www.team-nexgen.com (Acidmax)

    *****X and XChat are some good cross-platform alternatives.

    Got to agree with NetRyder there. I love AcidMax over mIRC, I have also tried the cygwin irc thinger, thats pretty cool, all text based though.

    I would give Mozilla a plug, but I never used it.

    Eggdrop bots are the best i think. Tons and tons of add-ons for them, so you can have them do pretty much anything and they're stable.

    I would ... but I don't like Chatzilla. :)
    I like the browser, and that's about it.
