Nowadays, it seems that the 'next level' of console based irc clients is led by Irssi, which I run, but lately I've gotten into a slightly different, and perhaps even arguably better client, WeeChat - which is what I voted for.
WeeChat doesn't have to restart and completely extensible on the fly - something Irssi isn't.
The two behave similarly, but also differently, so migration between the two is relatively painless.
Thanks for letting me know about WeeChat. It's been about a week since I installed it and it feels really great. I'm considering about switching from Irssi (which served me well last year, hence I voted for it).
I use mostly Mercury Messenger (MSN client), but the linux version development seems to be stopped for more than one and a half years now, so I voted for Gyachi, which is what I use when I want to chat over Yahoo. BTW, Emesene is missing on the list
