    mIRC is total crap!
    I'm not trolling. It's my honest opinion!
    HexChat is superior and completely free!

    The GUI has some stupid things going on, but it's stable and reliable.

    Best IRC client hands-down. It is by far the most stable, low-resource, and customizable IRC client around - and one of the originals.

    FatBast seems to hate this program but fails to mention one thing that it falls short at doing. My guess is he is a Linux fanboy who gets off on hating on Windows users who figures that if it's not a console app and a real pain the in a** to use (ircii, epic, bx) that it must suck. Go circle jerk your friends (who only exist on IRC most likely) elsewhere. We get it, you hate Windows cuz it's not l33t l1k3 j00.

    mIRC is as slim as you want it to be. Out of the box it's pretty much as light-weight, feature packed, and solid as you can imagine. If you want to install scripts (whether they're practical or you want some lame annoying spam bot script) you can do that. mIRC script has been a fairly well established language that anyone with mild programming experience can pick up. Seriously, it doesn't get better than this. Just about every bad review is from one person... Fat Bast.

    Great program if you like to go ahead on creativity.

    Fatbas**** does feel desperate to make low reviews of whatever he doesn't like.
    You look just like a politician...
