I definitely agree. I don't like browser-based applications.

I have used HexChat before, and it was nice to work with. I switched
to Weechat when I setup ZNC. I like working with terminals, and
Weechat is perfect for this.

AFAIK, that still holds true. This was applied as a measure to stop
spambot waves. It is however very restrictive. OTOH, #flashrom has
quiet for all unregistered nicks, except those connecting from
freenode's webchat. This has the advantage of restricting less
legitimate users (especially webchat, which is rather popular among
those who only connect for support), but requires messaging an OP
should someone need to be manually voiced.
