I'm wondering is there anyway to connect to IRC server via Message default app in OS X. Could I do it over XMPP protocol?


No the Messages app won't work as an IRC client. You have to use another app. Here you can find a list of good apps supporting IRC.

  • Hi NEO, I already use Adium as my IRC client. This question contains my hope for using default OSX app for IRC because default OSX app is the best for performance... – Toan Nguyen Jul 3 '15 at 7:09

    I myself have used Adium for years and it's really good. Yeah I see your point but the Messages app does not support IRC. – NEO Jul 3 '15 at 10:20
