Advantages Simple to use, yet powerful when you look beneath the surface.
Disadvantages Be careful where you chat - there's a seedy side to the net out there.
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?
>So what is IRC all about?
IRC is one of the original methods of chatting on the internet. It's interactive, real-time chatting and the beauty is that you're not restricted to chatting with users from your own isp or those using the same chat client as yourself. Basically you connect to one of a myriad of IRC servers through a client such as mIRC (though there are many others that can be used such as vIRC, Microsoft Chat, java clients from web pages, Ircle for Macs, PIRCH, and a host of others - but this is meant to be a review of mirc so I'll stick to that).
My other reason for liking mIRC is that it's so customisable and potentially very powerful. Not only can you chat, but you can also send and receive files from fellow users. You can install scripts to do various extra things (such as play sound files to your friends - mp3s, wavs and midis). You can also load popup files that allow you to create pretty ascii art to play to your friends and you can create aliases to shorten typing commands you use often. There are many help channels run by the servers where you can get help with scripting and other issues.>Any negative features?
Personally I've been using this client for years now - there's always something new to learn as the software evolves. It pays to check mirc.com regularly for updates and/or new versions.Happy chatting!!
P.S. It's difficult to rate the Quality of Discussions as that depends on where you choose to chat. I've made countless new friends through this medium so find it excellent.
