XChat is a standalone IRC client for Linux and Windows. It is especially popular amongst Linux users which prefer graphical clients[Source?]. XChat is open-source and although the official Windows version is Shareware[3], there are unofficial builds from the available source which attempt to offer free Windows versions[4].


The client has a plugin interface for C[5] and some scripting languages, e.g. Python[6] or TCL[7] (although the latter is done through a third-party plugin).
