I'm not sure which WeeChat you're comparing to, but practically nothing you said applies to the weechat I know[1]. It's primary interface is a CLI one, it is incredibly flexible, and it's a full fledged IRC client with every single feature you listed.

Hmm, you're right. I had a different client in mind and confused the two - can't remember what it was called now, tried to Google but it might have died along time ago.

Hell even xchat is now hexchat. Weechat seems to be a pretty good client.

The nick list on the side does have its drawbacks when it comes to small screen realestate- but for a newbie (and beyond really. It seems to be very extedable) Friendly client it's impressive.
