I was looking at the IRC clients http://www.applefritter.com/node/2601 and was wondering which one is best and why?

This will be used on X.2.8, btw.

XChat

Personally, I like XChat Aqua, but you could chalk that up to no experience with the others under OS X.

I haven't looked into OS X IR

I haven't looked into OS X IRC clients lately, but when I was using 10.1 I *loved* Athena.

XChat

I use XChat Aqua. If I wanted to spend the money, I'd probably use Ircle.

I still use Ircle because it

I still use Ircle because it has a few features others dont. Snak is nice if you are used to mIRC, but I cant stand mIRC heh. I also run a BitchX client on my shell that I access when I am not at home. Xchat works pretty good too.
