Kind regards,

I really like Konversation these days. The defaults are good, it supports proportional fonts, and it actually saves when you change things in the config UI and hit 'apply'.

This.

Unless I'm on a Windows machine I don't regularly use, and I only need to jump in an IRC channel real quick. Then I lean towards HexChat. Otherwise, irssi gets my vote.

Thanks to those mentioning irssi -- I had used a command-line client which was overly complex for my needs and seemed tricky to set up but I just installed irssi and it just works.
I may have to vote for it next year.
