Windows 7: which IRC client do you use?

which IRC client do you use?

Ive been using mirc for many years and have recently been trying other clients out. So far Ive not really found one that I like and is as functional as mirc.

So which client do you use? Would be nice to have a 64-bit version but the only ones Ive found so far arent really up to scratch.

The only one I've found that even comes close is xchat (xchat.org), and it isn't as good as mIRC in my opinion. I think the functionality mIRC offers far surpasses any other client I've used.

You may also want to to look at pidgin and trillian for their IRC capabilities as they aren't bad and also give the familiar IM look and feel to IRCing.

I agree there. Xchat is ok, but you cant surpass mirc for its shear amount of features and scripting.

I like to see what the alternatives are like.

I use ICQ not that I have ever thought about it that much, just being compatible with everyone else I know and chat to.

Yeah and I refused to use MSN because Microsoft used to force it on us
I quite like ICQ..............when the ads are blocked!!

They no longer force it on us now since you have to go out and download it either just by itself or as part of the live pack. You can block the ads in msn also
