HexChat is an IRC chat program.
It allows you to join multiple IRC channels (chat rooms) at
the same time, talk publicly, private one-on-one conversations etc.
HexChat is based on XChat, but unlike XChat it's completely
free for both Windows and Unix-like systems.
Since XChat is Open Source, it's perfectly legal.

If you want spell-check to work, you need to install Aspell
dictionary for your language.
For FiSH Protection it is best to use irc/py-fishcrypt, HexChat has one
Option FiSHLiM which doesn't work good.
