I picked weechat.

I opened this thread knowing I was going to pick pidgin, but thought... hey I do like weechat. It's a real refreshing spin on the cli based IRC clients and it's on par with irssi.

But I really consider IC clients in a category all their own.

sad to say, but pidgin is still king here.

i agree that irc clients could really do with their own category... then i could be torn between erc, ii, and irssi.

To me, none of these really stand out as being the best "of the Year" so I just picked my all-time favourite, Irssi.

Since I started using Jabber/XMPP more than IRC this year, I voted for Pidgin, but for IRC weechat is a great choice.
