To be able to connect to an IRC channel it's necessary to have a client, like XChat. This client will allow us to connect with all those channels that we have the address of, allowing among other things to:
- Add channels to our favorites list.
- Assign predetermined nicks for each channel.
- Establish channels to open automatically when we launch the application.
- Add or delete channels and servers.
- Private conversations.
- Use color texts.
- And many other options.
All in all, XChat is an ideal IRC client for any user, that doesn't require hardly any computing knowledge due to the fact that is uses a rather simple interface.
