IrcClientSurvey says how I produced the list. Plus some manual editing to restore some of the stranger replies. 😊

Irssi and ERC continue dominating the list. Where is X-Chat!? 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!

Strange, the rcirc clients didn’t respond to the CTCP request sent to the channel.

(And where’s Rockers Client? I’m still using that. – RandalSchwartz)
