xChat vs HexChat


I was hanging out on the #debian irc Channel

when I said I was using xChat, someone said it was history that I should use HexChat

I installed it and open it, and remember the IRC channels was in ( suggested me to add #elive).

Is HexcHat the successor of xChat(included in Elive) ? better ? or different / question of taste


I don’t know, i didn’t find so many differences. Maybe there are more plugins available in hexchat?
I used to use hexchat back on my old computer because it had a good notifications system and worked greatly under windows xp too (or was it q4os themed as windows xp? THings get confused over time ahahah)


I have it noted in a task (between other trillions) to review for compare both and decide one for the future versions
