“mIRC celebrates its tenth year of development today, of having played a small though curious, and unexpected, part in the life of the Internet over the last ten years”, the mIRC website announced.
“In the early years of IRC, IRC was mostly limited to technical users, people who used non-graphical, command-line IRC clients such as ircii, and who had a fairly intricate knowledge of how IRC and the Internet worked. mIRC was designed with one purpose in mind: to make the basics of IRC accessible to as many people as possible, while at the same time retaining the technical aspects which so many others enjoyed”. mIRC remains one of the most popular clients in use on IRC today.
