IrcClientSurvey says how I produced the list.

Irssi, ERC, and XChat continue dominating the list. I continue to think that irssi remains popular because people keep it running inside GNU screen sessions. We never learn anything new from these lists!

I’m impressed by the guy who uses telnet to chat. :)
