mIRC is a very popular IRC (Internet relay chat) client. This program allows you to connect to various networks at the same time. Fortunately, it allows voice chat, text formatting and multimedia objects. Moreover, it can handle CTCP commands and events.
The interface is rather straightforward; yet, its design is not very attractive. Its installer has a small size and the program requires no special skills to install it correctly. You will need to provide some initial data, as server name and user name, before you can start using it to communicate. At this point, some inexperienced users may feel a little confused; however, it will help a lot that the program comes with a preset ICR server. After the initial setting, you will surely use it without any difficulty whatsoever. All you need is to connect to a chat room and start to communicate. The first step is choosing one of the multiple available channels (or chat rooms). Moreover, you can also establish a private chat or transfer files to other users.
In general, mIRC has the advantage of being small and reliable. Furthermore, it allows you to connect to a very wide community of users worldwide and share multiple types of contents with them.
