[POLL] IRC Clients - 2011 Member Choice

Let your voice be heard and your opinion tallied. This poll will cover:

Internet Relay Chat (IRC) Clients

The IRC (Internet relay chat) protocol was developed in 1988 by Jarkko Oikarinen as a way for users on a BBS to chat amongst themselves. Distributed chat communications has a history going back to the early 1970's though in the 1960's some of the early programmers recognized that multi-user human communication was the wave of the future. Before IRC the earlier programs were limited to transmit messages between two users at a time. IRC use most likely slowed down a bit when instant messaging programs like ICQ and later AIM were developed.

IRC as described in the Wickipedia:
Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a form of real-time Internet chat or synchronous conferencing. It is mainly designed for group communication in discussion forums called channels, but also allows one-to-one communication via private message, as well as chat and data transfers via Direct Client-to-Client.





Remember this is an objective poll, so no discussion will be allowed.

Thank you so much for your participation!

Nice poll!

For "other", I use various java-based webchats since I rarely use IRC anymore; mIRC is my fallback if that fails.

What a thorough selection! Great poll aefstoggaflm See Profile. Voted Chatzilla. Also use the web based »webchat.freenode.net/ when I don't have Chatzilla available.

Voted Chatzilla & Pidgin but 'none' is just as accurate. Maybe 1 login/per month to ask a quick question then gone. Not chatting involved, per se.

Thanks for polling, aefstoggaflm.
