The best IRC client for Macs in my opinion. X-Chat Aqua falls second, then it's MacIrssi in third. Linkinus seemed amazing, but it started to run very slow for me, and I've had problems such as channel screens going blank and not being able to refresh or show the text again in any way even though notifications of people's messages still showed up. I've tried many other clients too, and the best are the ones listed.
