Hi, I have the beta version of Adium and added an IRC account with hostname irc.freenode.net. However, the status on start up is always "connecting" --it never gets to online. Was there something else I needed to do (different port #, password)?

Yes I use the latest beta of Adium (http://adium.im/beta/), since it
can combine various accounts and protocols. IRC is not it's primary
strengths but was good enough for me so far.
I know there is Colloquy which Eli mentioned (better) and Conversation
I haven't used Windows for a while now, but I know back in the days
mIRC was considered good (http://www.mirc.com/)
