Re: Free IRC Recommendations

I've never used IRC but This lists top 16 and considers the pros and cons. A number of them are free to the end user.

HTH.

Re: Free IRC Recommendations

Server lists, you could try irc.netsplit.de - and a decent client is HexChat.

As far as I know, HexChat still has a big server list in and when you are connected most IRC networks will allow you to grab a channel list by typing /LIST.
