How to Use IRC Chat Rooms With Pidgin

This post was a quick tutorial on how to login to the IRC chat channels with a free program called Pidgin. Pidgin also lets you log in to several other chat services at the same time. (See the Pidgin website for a complete list.)

First, download Pidgin. It runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac, though Mac users might want to try Colloquy instead.

Update: as of 2019, we no longer have an IRC channel, but you can visit this tutorial for instructions on how to connect with IRC via Pidgin.
