Epic – a IRC client that has been under active development for 25+ years in 5 generations. It is stable and mature, and offers an excellent ircII interface for those of us who are accustomed to the ircII way of doing things. It was forked from ircII in the early 1990s and is still actively maintained.

– EPIC is a traditional ircII client with the ircII programming language and user interface, but can interface with Perl, Ruby, and TCL for extensions.
– EPIC is still maintained and has an active community of friendly people (irc is about socializing, after all!)
– EPIC has low requirements for memory and CPU, which is nice for multi-user servers.
– EPIC is focused on staying out of your way – a lot of clients have ideas about how you should use irc, and can be cranky if you want to do something it doesn’t anticipate. EPIC is completely open ended and programmable.
