Description

The current IRC icon in Thunderbird really doesn't make me think of IRC. :) The two bubbles [1] is also confusingly similar to the "three bubbles" icon used to represent a chat in general.

Unfortunately there's no "official" IRC icon (and most of the ones out there I haven't been a fan of). But something a bit different here seems like it would be beneficial.

Maybe a speech bubble with a "#" inside? That's the closest I can think of to an IRC-like symbol.

I agree that that's probably the closest we're going to get. I think we should run with that!
Sounds good to me! Icon coming.
