Are you wanting to know who uses what I take it ? Well, you could search on browsers as we have had many polls and such regarding who uses what for a browser.

IRC, I think we've had a few but I would say either XChat for within X and BitchX from within a command or terminal.

Not a big IRC user but I hear KIRC is pretty cool. Also Phoenix (a mozilla branch) is awsome.

Don't use IRC but I use Opera as my browser--very light and very fast.

I don't use IRC either, but x-chat seems to work ok.

I'm a pretty strict Phoenix user... It's faster and "looks" better than Mozilla... the fonts render clearer for some reason.

I only use Phoenix on Windows, as well, when I'm on someone else's machine.

Phoenix/Opera & X-Chat

Phoenix for heavy browsing, Opera if I just need to quickly load a page.

Opera for simple html. Mozilla for flash/java webpage (better compatibility)
Xchat for IRC
