This Internet Relay Chat client is function-rich and flexible, but novices will be overwhelmed by the very busy interface.

IceChat IRC Client's colorful, browser-like interface crams together buttons and command windows, and, by including so much information and so many options, potentially scares off users. Functions are placed in the usual pull-down menus, and buttons are present for often-used commands. Thankfully, you can minimize two command windows to remove many of the distractions.

After the steep learning curve of IRC and this client, you'll find some powerful features. The primary window sets all open servers and channels into tabs, making it easy to monitor multiple conversations. The tab windows are easily tiled or cascaded for those who want to watch every conversation sail by. This utility excels with simple scripting capabilities and a user-friendly script autoload function.

We wouldn't recommend this client for novices, but intermediate users with some time to study the help file might make this freeware their favorite client.
