Instantbird and Pidgin messengers are best known for talking to contacts on multi-networks. And they both support Google Talk,MSN,Aim and more. But did you know that you can also use Pidgiand Instantbird to connect to and chat on IRC networks? Until a few days ago, I did not know this myself.Until I searched on the web and found out that you can connect to multiple IRC networks on both messengers.
There are several IRC chat messengers, but they are not very user friendly,in fact several that I tried I could not use at all. And a lot of IRC clients are only free for a trial period. After which time you have to pay to carry on using it.
But Instantbird and Pidgin are both free messengers. And as well as supporting most email accounts,they also support IRC,where a lot of other ordinary messengers don't.
