XChat is an
Relay Chat (IRC) chat
program. It allows you to join multiple IRC channels (chat rooms) at
the same time, talk publicly, private one-on-one conversations etc. It
can also be used to transfer files with other users.
It has a choice of a tabbed or tree interface, support for
multiple servers, and a high level of configurability. Both command
line and graphical versions are available, although use of the
graphical version far outweighs use of the command line version.
