You don't need SASL to use freenode. It does simplify
identifying/login, but it's not compulsory, unless you want to use

Other than that, you can use any client and issue:

/msg nickserv identify <password>

And that will identify you with services (assuming you want to
register a nick).

I prefer irssi, personally. It's stable and has been going for
donkey's years.
