I’m fond of IRC though I wonder how much of it is nostalgia - I am of the impression that IRC is showing its age and there are a lot of inconsistencies in client implementations. I’ve heard good things about things about Matrix - most of the complaints about it seem to be philosophical rather than technical.

Another candidate is mattermost, but I find it harder to get going. rocketchat is nice, but it seems to be losing out in the "market"-share battle.
