Well, the Konversation authors seem to have usability as their main goal---and
I think they're doing a great job. Konversation, even in its current beta
version is easy to use and already quite powerful.
I can't really speak about KVIrc, as the last time I used it was awhile ago.
The KVIrc I used then was a confusing mess of nonstandard widgets that
appeared to have been thrown together with little regard for usability. It
didn't even use a standard KDE menu bar; it had some sort of horizontal
collection of text buttons or something that sort of looked like a menu, but
didn't behave quite like one. I found it very difficult to use.
However, it sounds like Robin Verduijn has been working hard to improve KVIrc.
I'm suspect it's much better now.
You should really try both IRC clients and see which you like better. In the
end, only you will know what is best for you. =)
