I use ChatZilla as my default IRC client. Sadly, when you restart Firefox, ChatZilla restarts too. And I restart Firefox every now and then, because if you leave it on for too long, it hogs RAM.
So I'm asking, what's a good replacement for this? I love the way ChatZilla handles settings, how easy it is to connect and have a list of commands executed upon certain actions.
I've heard good things about Irssi, but I wanna know if there are any others I might be missing out on.
Note 1: I am on Windows Vista
Note 2: Don't recommend mIRC, that's shareware. I am well aware that the larger part of mIRC users never actually pay for it after the 30-day trial, but it's against my principles. No mIRC!
