IRC - Internet Relay ChatIRC is probably the oldest form of chat on the Internet.
It is still very workable and the client programs for it
are small in code size and yet very powerful tools.
I have used mIRC since 1996. All other chat formats
that I had tried alternatively, fall short of the power
available to user compared to mIRC.
