IRC clients, best IRC clients, top IRC clients, Linux IRC, WeeChaov

1. Konversation

Konversation is a user-friendly Internet Relay Chat (IRC) client built on the KDE Platform. (Official Website)

2. XChat

XChat is an IRC chat program for both Linux and Windows. It allows you to join multiple IRC channels (chat rooms) at the same time, talk publicly, private one-on-one conversations etc. Even file transfers are possible. (Official Website)

3. Quassel IRC

Quassel IRC is a modern, cross-platform, distributed IRC client, meaning that one (or multiple) client(s) can attach to and detach from a central core -- much like the popular combination of screen and a text-based IRC client such as WeeChat, but graphical. (Official Website)

4. Smuxi

Smuxi is an open-source, powerful, flexible, and user-friendly chat client created by Mirco Bauer and developed by other contributors. Inspired by the combination of screen and irssi, Smuxi has a detachable server (or like a "normal" client) that stays connected when you aren't, and can allow multiple Smuxi frontends (like the GNOME frontend, or STFL text-based frontend) to be connected and in sync. This is similar to screen+irssi or IRC bouncers, but more elegant and powerful. (Official Website)

5. KVirc

KVIrc is a free portable IRC client based on the excellent Qt GUI toolkit. KVirc is being written by Szymon Stefanek and the KVIrc Development Team with the contribution of many IRC addicted developers around the world. (Official Website)

6. ChatZilla

ChatZilla is a clean, easy to use and highly extensible Internet Relay Chat (IRC) client, built on the Mozilla platform, which provides all the usual features: multiple servers, a built-in list of standard networks, easy searching and sorting of available channels, logging, and DCC chat and file transfers, plus easy customization with JavaScript plug-ins and CSS styling. (Official Website)

7. Irssi

Irssi is a terminal based IRC client for UNIX systems. It also supports SILC and ICB protocols via plugins. (Official Website)

8. ERC

10. ScrollZ

ScrollZ is an advanced IRC client based on ircII. It incorporates many useful features found in all sorts of scripts. The main difference between these scripts and ScrollZ is the code - whereas ircII scripts take a lot of disk and memory space and run slow, ScrollZ only takes a couple of extra kilobytes compared to stock ircII client yet runs faster than any ircII script.
