Clients

There are a range of IRC clients most of which take some getting used to - here are some recommendations:

Cross Platform

Pidgin ([1]) - Does just about everything chat-wise.

Windows

mIRC ([2]) - The most popular IRC client (free but you get messages on startup asking you to pay)

Linux

XChat ([3]) - Windows version isn't free but a nice GUI linux chat client. irssi ([4]) - Console based IRC client, clean and highly configurable.

Web-based

mibbit ([5]) - Browser based chat client, try to use a real client where possible.
