I recently noticed that some people seem to be die-hard advocates of certain
irc clients; irssi, BitchX and x-chat to name a few.
I've never really been bothered with scripting and other advanced features of
irc clients, but I am curious as to the main differences between the popular
Linux-based irc clients. Could anyone enlighten me?
I should mention that I'm not trying to start an advocacy war here, but I have
used irssi for years because it's convenient to leave running in a remote
screen session, and would like a quick idea of what I'm missing (if anything)
in other clients.
