The Irssi console chat utility is powerful yet frugal with resources. And Irssi’s scripting features make it a giant among chat tools.
Irssi is a text-based, command line chat client. Don’t make the mistake of thinking Irssi is old-fashioned, or restricted in its functionality; in fact, Irrsi beats some GUI-based contenders hands down with respect to feature richness and usability.
Irssi is a command line only tool, so first open a console, then type irssi to launch. The status window appears first; this is where server messages and help texts appear. The small  next to the time display shows you that you are in the first window.
