HexChat is an IRC client based on XChat, but unlike XChat it's completely free for both Windows and Unix-like systems. Since XChat is open source, it is perfectly legal.
HexChat was originally called XChat-WDK which in turn was a successor of freakschat.
This download is licensed as freeware for the Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system on a laptop or desktop PC from instant messaging software without restrictions. HexChat 2.14.2 is available to all software users as a free download for Windows 10 PCs but also without a hitch on Windows 7 and Windows 8.
Compatibility with this IRC chat software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version may be available from berkeviktor.
