Quassel logo.png Quassel IRC is a modern, cross-platform, distributed IRC client.


A chat in quassel (click to enlarge).
  • Quassel has a modern GUI with dockable nicklist and topic bar and customizable views.
  • Quassel is built on Nokia Qt4 libraries. That means that it will run under Linux, MacOS, and Windows.
  • Quassel optionally supports a stand alone so called core that can stay connected to the IRC channels. One or more Quassel clients can connect to the core and continue chatting where ever they left the network. That includes a kind of BNC functionality so that you can follow the discussions that happened during your absence.


  • Why is there no "close chat" menu item?
This is because quassel has a different approach to logging in and out of a chat. You can "Hide a chat temporarily" or "Hide a chat permanently". If you hide a chat temporarily, the chat will remain active till you un-hide it.
  • Why is it named "quassel"
"quasseln" is a familiar German expression for "talking".
