Although the cleanest and most feature rich of all the portable IRC clients available, unfortunately KV has quite a few bugs. Though the UNIX version of the program is still active, the Windows version of this program has not been updated much as its last stable release was in Feb '05. It doesn't look like those are going to get cleared up.

What could have been a fantastic, open source alternative to the commercial mIRC doesn't appear to have many advocates.
