The few times I use IRC, I just do it in my web browser.

I'm often using two or three: HexChat for chanops, KVIRC and/or irssi for viewing ASCII/ANSI art better (both have advantages and disadvantages... HexChat is not good at this, but for my main usage.)

I prefer Konversation-trinity. It does the job well and I am partial to tqt apps.
