"Great"

July 30, 2005  |  By John99

 |  Version: IceChat IRC Client 5.2

Pros

IceChat crashed the first time I used it but it was easily fixed with a quick update. It's free and does not contain spyware plus it's not a resource hog and it's easy to use. Very good app!

"Very happy with this easy to use feature rich HTML editor"

March 25, 2005  |  By peschtra

 |  Version: IceChat IRC Client 5.2

Pros

IceChat was easy to install and easy to use. I use IRCing in no time. IceChat was simple clean, and came programmed with 5 different servers.

Cons

The only downside I saw, and I don't know if it is the program's fault, was that it took forever to download the list of channels. Outside of that, it is an excellent program.

"Very userfriendly"

January 16, 2005

 |  Version: IceChat IRC Client 5.2

Summary

Until now, I've been using ChatZilla which is an extension to Firefox. After reinstalling Windows XP, I wanted to try something new, and downloaded IceChat.
The installation is very easy and quick, and the program is very user friendly... I was up and running in one minute.

"Free and clear! A great IRC client."

August 31, 2004

 |  Version: IceChat IRC Client 5.2

Summary

In response to other reviews, I have analyzed this application on the basis of technical merit. I have successfully maintained a connection for over 12 hours on three servers in rooms of 200+ people each. IceChat did not even register as using practically any of my processor, and it only utilized around 10 megabytes of RAM. The IceChat IRC network is not even included as a default server, so if this is merely an advertisement, it's not a very good attempt. In watching the installation procedure, only a local registry hive was created as well as a few non-generic DLLs registered. This is hardly an installation that even has the capability of causing someone to reinstall Windows. The installation is a clean process, the interface is clean, and overall, I would recommend this program to any IRC user. Probably one of the best features is the back-buffer of things that you type allowing you to go back to that question that's been ignored in an IRC room for the last 30 minutes. Kudos, IceChat!

"poor program"

April 13, 2004

 |  Version: IceChat IRC Client 5.2

Summary

The progam crashed after only ten minutes online. Restarted it and did the same time after time. Functions such as add server you want to join didnt work. I entered the servers info and it took me to a completely different server then i wanted to go. I have been using IRC for years and find this program lacking in more then one area. Its unstable to say the least.

"Cute, intuitive, works!"

July 21, 2003

 |  Version: IceChat IRC Client 5.2

Summary

Compared to other irc clients I've used, this one has the most intuitive interface and is most pleasant looking. It has cute features and prompts at appropriate places. As an irc client for chatting, it works. I don't ask for anything else in a program.

"Very user-friendly"

May 22, 2003

 |  Version: IceChat IRC Client 5.2

Summary

I tried another freeware IRC client called Winbot and I find IceChat much more intuitive and easy to use. I'm not a computer guru so the windows and color buttons let me just use it without having to read the Tutorial.
