Linux.com: Merry X-Chat! Easy IRC Just in Time for the Holidays

“So all of your friends seem to have the IRC thing figured out,
and maybe you do too, but you’re used to Windows-compatible
applications like mIRC and pirch98. Have no fear. Although some
Linux tasks may prove daunting to those accustomed to Windows,
using X-Chat is not among them. As an IRC client for the X windows
environment, and it’s at least (if not more) easy to use than most
other IRC clients.

“First, determine that you have X-Chat installed. Go to
Networking -> IRC. See it? Great! You’ll be chatting in minutes.
(Make sure you are looking under IRC and not Chat.) If you don’t
see it, don’t panic! Downloading and installing X-Chat is
surprisingly easy.”
