IRC = Internet Relayed Chat

IRC is a system that in some ways is similar to internet itself, but used for chatting.

IRC is without doubt the most used (pure chatting) system
in the world for chatting via the internet.

There are different "networks" that basically are various number of local servers that synchronize the same information/chatting in that specific network.

There are many chat networks, that it would be impossible to list them all here and now, but the ones I can think of right now are:
DALnet, Quakenet, Undernet, Blitzed.

Each network consits of channels, in the channels you may chat with other ppl that are currently in the same network and channel.

To chat you need to use a chat client.
For the windows O/S there are a lot of different IRC clients, the most common is mIRC.

Also, there are different client scripts available, i.e for mIRC. A script is n "enhancement" or modification to the client and can perform various tasks within the chat session. Some ppl that play fps games like Halflife and mods usually hangs out in the network Quakenet. (network used mainly for fps games)

Some networks have support for webchat via IRC, like blitzed. In this way you dont need a client, and can chat right away from the webbrowser, like IE6.0 or later.

If you want to see what IRC is all about, we have a channel used to for chatting IRC both via web and using a client. However I remind you that if you chat via a webchat it will be slightly delayed due to the technical sollution. (CGI)

Feel free to check it out, we have a webchat on our homepage that is connected to the blitzed network.

IRC itself is a free of charge system, just like internet itself.

You can register your own channel or nickname and chat and perform filetransfers etc etc.
