I used to use BitchX, which is a fairly nice command line client if 
you're into details. Nowadays I use the mozilla client, "chatzilla". It 
comes integrated with mozilla suite (firefox and thunderbird are just 
components, so you don't get chatzilla that way...if you have actual 
mozilla suite installed, chatzilla is a button label cZ in the lower 
left corner). One of these days I'll have to find out if they package 
chatzilla separately somewhere.
