F-IRC – an IRC client for terminals/command-line/console. Its goal is to be as user friendly as possible with easy navigation and keyboard shortcuts for quick navigation. It has an as much a gentle learning curve as possible.

From the project page:

Why?

I wrote it because I had too many problems with irssi. For a lot (most?) people irssi is perfect but I wanted an easy, clear interface like XChat and mIRC usable from within a terminal window (and compatible to GNU screen). I wanted easy channel select navigation, a pop-up menu for actions and easy to configure. There was no such thing at that time.

F-IRC was analyzed by Coverity Scan, CPPCheck and LLVM’s scan-build for software defects.
