“Powerful oldtimer”

published 02/08/2001

ProSimple, powerful

ConsSpamming

On the Internet there are many ways to talk to other people. Nowadays, the (instant) messaging programs like MSN and ICQ are very popular. But there is also IRC, or Internet Relay Chat. This way of communicating is a little more complicated and I think that’s why it isn’t as popular...

ConsMay be exploited (unlikely though)

Then download mIRC. mIRC is the creation of Khaled Mardam-Bey, an enterprising young Brit. mIRC has been around for years, and is the chat client of choice for most hardcore internet users. mIRC is basically a user-friendly interface for using IRC (Internet Relay Chat). The basic theory behind...

ProFast, inexpensive, painfully easy to use.

ConsThat annoying smiley face!

I haven't really had much use for any type of chat room in over a year. They're not as stimulating and informative as sites such as this - and, quite frankly, if it came down to it, I'd rather chew on tinfoil than bore myself to death on any chat line! (Ouch!) With that in mind, let me tell you...

Mirc is my favourite chat utility. Originally I started in the Compuserve chat rooms years ago, but on leaving Compuserve (due to the exhorbitant per hour billing) myself and some friends took the plunge into using IRC - Internet Relay Chat. >What is mirc.com? This is the website where one of the...

In my opinion, mIRC always has been and always will be the only way to chat. It is just one of many "IRC Clients" - programs that allow you to connect to a protocal called IRC or "Internet Relay Chat" - but I believe it is by far the best. What's the IRC protocal? The IRC protocal allows users to...

ConsIRC is full of malicious people

mIRC, makes IRC simple, perfect for newbies. Unfortunately it's IRC that's the problem, with bots, floods and DoS attacks (exlpained later on) it can be a pretty dangerous place. Forunately some rooms are full of nice people who you can chat with and make friends. Servers, this is quite comfusing...

ConsSome annoying people, bad manners

I've been involved with IRC since I started university in 1997 when I no longer had to worry about spending too much time connected to the Internet at home. I had heard about it from a friend who had told me how to get connected, so I downloaded it, and installed it. It's a fairly small download...

I have been using "MIRC" for quite a few years and find it easily the best "Online Chat Program" available.Its much better the ICQ and others, as it is a multiuser chat program, meaning you go in channels that can hold up too 200 chatterboxes at one time. Well if you dont know, Mirc is a very...
