Be nice to all and receive that niceness in return
As the title suggests.. What is your preferred IRC client?
Here are mine:
PC: WeeChat.Android: Atomic. (A fork of yaaic)
IRC Cloud has been very useful for me. I like the persistent connection and the mobile support. Not free though, so there is that.
Any info on pricing? I tried looking it up but it seems as if they make you sign up to see prices. Also, do the have an Android app?
$3/mo and the Android app is wonderful.
Using IceChat at the moment.
I spend all my time in terminals, so I'm normally between irssi and erc for Emacs.
I'm a Weechat kind of guy. I run it on a Raspberry Pi and SSH in from wherever I am (including on my phone :P).
Either KiwiIRC or HexChat. Both look pretty good!
Hexchat or when I remember to take advantage of it IRC Explorer from the microsoft app store (it's actually pretty nice and really nice if you use windows apps on a regular basis(I mean like apps not traditional progams)).
Anybody have a suggestion for a Windows Phone 8.1 IRC Client?
kvIRC - works OK. I dont hate it.
Quassel is fantastic, especially with a Quassel Core set up, since you can read chat that happened while you were away with your client closed.
What OS is that for and does it just collect chat while you're disconnected?
Windows and Linux for sure, and I'm pretty sure they have an OS X version too.
The "Core" basically runs on a server and connects to your IRC networks and channels, and then your client connects to your Core server and syncs chat. While your client is closed or your computer is off/sleeping, you usually appear away, but the core stores all chat in your joined channels. When you open up your client again, your user experience is the same as any IRC client, but you get scrollback for however many lines you set (I think I have around 10,000).
The only issue with the core is that IRC has such heavy disk I/O that it can slow down your server if you're not careful (I'm joined to about 30 very active channels though). Also many server hosts specifically forbid IRC-related servers for that reason.
Edit: there's also an Android client as well, which is pretty nice.
Hermes on android (which I don't really like...), but that sweet Material Design... and HexChat on PC.
Konversation is working well for me right now, but I'm new to IRC so who knows what I'll use in the future.
I've been using HydralIRC on PC for the moment, it doesn't look too bad. I used MIRC heavily back in the day.
I use LimeChat on OSX and im using AndroIRC on my phone at the moment but im not really enjoying it
I'm relatively new to IRC, so I haven't tried many clients but here are mine:
