A comparison of the amount of stargazers that the GitHub repositories of popular IRC clients have.

This is a comparison of the amount of stargazers that the GitHub repositories of popular IRC clients have. It orders by a count that has people removed that starred another client's repo after staring it giving a more exact actual popularity count. The "moved to" section assumes that someone will not unstar another client's repo after staring his new client's repo giving us some indication which was used previously.
