By Features

Many

  • irssi (can also load new modules and scripts, ideal for keeping logs)

Some

  • Colloquy (can load new scripts in a variety of languages)
  • Chatzilla (probably not extensible)
  • mIRC (somewhat extensible with scripts that completely overhaul and improve mIRC's functions, such as nonamescript)
  • HydraIRC (not extensible)

Barebones

  • Mibbit (has some neat functions built-in, but not extensible at all, and not very advanced)
