mIRC is a configurable IRC client that has an intuitive user interface, an events handler, and full send and receive capabilities for DCC (direct client connection) files. It also has color text, aliases, remote commands, a backgrounds option, and sound. It automatically opens Web sites as they are mentioned in a conversation, ignores DCC Sends that match specified filenames or types, and locks the program to disable various features. Version 5.8 features a host of bug fixes and improvements over previous versions including: *mIRC now uses its own internal beep sound for event beeps *URLs you can click on in mIRC now have their own right-click pop-up menu*New channel central dialog displays the ban, accept and invite lists more clearly *An Edit button has been added for on-the-fly editing of an address *mIRC now supports mp3 files through the /splay command. mIRC can be downloaded freely and evaluated for 30 days.
