mIRC is a full featured Internet Relay Chat client for Windows that can be used to communicate, share, play or work with others on IRC networks around the world, either in multi-user group conferences or in one-to-one private discussions.
It has a clean, practical interface that is highly configurable and supports features such as buddy lists, file transfers, multi-server connections, SSL encryption, proxy support, UTF-8 display, customizable sounds, spoken messages, tray notifications, message logging, and more.
mIRC also has a powerful scripting language that can be used both to automate mIRC and to create applications that perform a wide range of functions from network communications to playing games.
This latest version of mIRC updates the interface with shiny new icons as well as a range of other improvements, building on the previous release which added full Vista compatibility, support for limited user accounts, U3 support, tray notification messages, full treebar positioning, and a compact mode to make mIRC behave like a messenger application.
What's new in this version:
Version 6.31 includes a shiny new mIRC logo and new interface icons.
