I may have dismissed this too quickly, but I think you have to sign up for an account at quassel-irc.org before being able to connect to IRC. Not happening. Too bad, it looked like a decent interface. I recommend LimeChat...

I use Quassel and haven't had to sign up for any account with them.

Quassel is self-hosted (client+core), no registration on any third-party service is necessary nor possible.
(Of course you may register on IRC networks you connect to.)
