    I've always been a BitchX user, even in X. The cross-compatible client i suggest is kvirc. Nice interface, bad default skin though. Last time i checked i believe kvirc is included in /usr/ports/irc.

    I like mIRC with NoNameScript myself.

    One, because NNS is useful (plenty of shortcuts for boring channel administration tasks, accessing personal game servers - like the one set up by your good buddy Dinky McBluehead - and the like).
    Two, because it doesn't advertise its existence every ten seconds like half the scripts out there.
    Three, because it leaves out all the useless stuff like server nukes, ping bombs, and TeXt ThAt AuToMaTiCaLlY cHaNgEs CaSe EvErY oThEr LeTtEr! (I f*ing hate that shit - people think it makes them look like an 'ub3r l33t h4x0r', but it just makes them look like an uber clueless wannabe.)

    If I remember correctly, neither mIRC or trillian are free. They both have "free" versions, but you are supposed to pay for them at some point. mIRC I believe, is also much better than trillian.

    Xchat is pretty good for both...
    But I use irssi/screen all the time now, I think its the best out there... for *nix

    Trillian is popular on Windows, I use mIRC however.
