Great free client. But i still prefer mIRC.
Yes you have to pay for mIRC but only once then its yours forever.

Not even close to mIRC? Are you kidding? Free and opensource vs 30 days of nag-screens until you have to pay? Hydra does everything I use IRC for, and even has some features I use that don't come with mIRC.

This is a really good client, but still doesn't even come close to mIRC.

Did tannman1 just mention pirch? Hey tannman1, 10 years ago called.. they want their IRC Client back.

Anyway, hydraIRC is alright but doesn't have anywhere near the experience/time tested-ness that mirc has. mirc has always been the #1 IRC client for Windows and I really don't see that changing any time soon.

Have to disagree...I've had both on my computer for a couple years and I rarely use mirc anymore. Can't live without the channel monitor.

This will probably never even come close to mIRC, but in terms of alternatives its great really.

The client offers a viable choice over Mirc or Pirch. However configuration may be difficult for new users and some features such as ability to send messages to room ops only should be included. This client deserves to be followed for newer builds

mIRC is still #1. However this IS a very nice effort.

Would need to offer something similar to aliases/remotes like mIRC before I'd jump the wagon. I looked pretty hard, but if I missed it somebody feel free to flame me.

Pretty much the only ICR client I've used in years. Still a little complicated to configure for newbies, but once you get used to it, it's pretty damn good.

The best IRC client out there...
But it could be updated more, but I'll still give it 5 stars! :D

This is the best, this much much more faster than mIRC and has many of good scripts already with it...
But I like GTSdll (a mIRC add-on), there should be a plugin or something what makes mIRC script add-on's work with HydraIRC :P
