    Post mIRC/Chatzilla: Alternative free IRC Client

    Hello guys I just got back from the IRC, playing Idle and Wolfbane. (Hungry...~ I should buy some breakfast after this)

    So mostly everyone knows that all the staff of mostly every scanlation group out there are lurking/staying in the IRC, since all their scanlation activities are being done in there and they use IRC clients software to access the IRC whether it is browser base or software base.


    Now here are some better and free alternatives for Chatzilla (Firefox browser base) and mIRC (Trial/Paid)

    First up we got

    Hexchat (Website: http://www.hexchat.org/ | Platform: Windows/Linux)

    HexChat is a patchset for XChat SVN which allows for building on Windows using the Windows Driver Kit, allowing it to use the system's msvcrt.dll. It's a free build of XChat for Windows.

    ~~I must say, it's not really an ugly IRC client but I don't like the interface, it has a XDCC feature so it's a bonus, but I still don't like it.

    Smuxi (Website: http://www.smuxi.org/main/ | Platform: Windows/Linux)


    • Smuxi is an irssi-inspired, flexible, user-friendly and cross-platform IRC client for sophisticated users, targeting the GNOME desktop.
    • Smuxi is based on the client-server model: The core application (engine) can be placed onto a server which is connected to the Internet around-the-clock; one or more frontends then connect to the core. This way, the connection to IRC can be kept up even when all frontends have been closed. The combination of screen and irssi served as example for this architecture.
    • Smuxi also supports the regular single application mode. This behaves like a typical IRC client; it doesnt need separate core management and utilizes a local engine that is used by the local frontend client, though it doesn't have XDCC features, so it's a meh for IRC downloader/uploader

    Quassel IRC (Website: http://quassel-irc.org/ | Platform: Mac/Windows/Linux)

    Quassel IRC is a modern, cross-platform, distributed IRC client based on the Qt4 framework. Distributed means that one (or multiple) client(s) can attach to and detach from a central core that stays permanently online -- much like the popular combination of screen and a text-based IRC client such as WeeChat, and similar to (but much more featureful than) so-called BNCs.

    Lastly in my list is

    KVIRC (Website: http://www.kvirc.net/?id=releases&lang=en (Download Address) | Platforms: Mac/Windows/Linux)

    KVIrc is a free portable IRC client based on the excellent Qt GUI toolkit. KVirc is being written by Szymon Stefanek and the KVIrc Development Team with the contribution of many IRC addicted developers around the world.

    ~~This is far by the best free IRC client with XDCC features that you could ever find, I have tested the others but this is the only one that catches my attention next to Smuxi (it will be better if it has XDCC support).

    The Default GUI


    My Dark Grey Theme (I like Dark Colors so I made it Dark, You can change the theme anytime you want


    You could even change the background to anime picture


    Another great feature of KVIRc is the Avatar, you could add your own Avatar Image and see other peoples Avatar anywhere in the IRC world. :) and can see those red/yellow/orange bars, they notify you if the user is active or not. A nice feature that you can also find in Mibbit (Browser base/no XDCC features),

    There are others but it has no XDCC feature

    It seems there are lots of KVIRc user which are visting RHS channel and those who lurks on the shadow (like me and I wonder why they don't have IRC avatar) . To those who are wondering how to get an IRC avatar here are the steps.

    You will need KVIRC, and an image not bigger than 800 x 600 (recommended- smaller images) then upload it to Imgur, Photobucket or any Image Hosting Website (I don't recommend Imageshack, and for Puush user, just add .jpg or .png on the end of the link)

    Note: XDCC upload won't work so don't even bother using that method on setting up your IRC Avatar




    Just configure the Identity Option





    then put the link of the avatar, Click Choose First the post the link, then Ok, Ok







    How it will look like in the IRC client:



    Hovering on it: Me





    The Other Guy: Corvo (Cleaner)




    There, you now have an IRC avatar.

    aside from that, KVIRC has the unique feature of the Pop-Up Notification which will notify you when someone calls your name or PM'ed you, also you can reply via the pop-up box. So it'll make easier to reply without restoring KVIRC and the Activity level bar, which enables you to see the activity level of a user or a channel and see how many users, operators, admin, who are talking etc etc (I forgot to take a screenshot)
