Have been trialing https://github.com/thelounge/thelounge recently, kind of like kiwiirc+znc in one. Clean UI, pretty simple to use, no crazy configuration
@idanoo How does it compare to Matrix with an IRC bridge?
@liamdiprose Much more native experience as expected, but you're not missing out on anything with a bridge. I just found the bridges to be a bit of a headache if you have things like nickserv and DM's on IRC
