||IRC Messenger is an innovative tool for chatting with your friends and contacts on IRC. It's the only existing messenger made just for IRC!
IRC Messenger boasts many features, such as a skinnable interface, encrypted chat, and voice (microphone) chat.
At its most basic level, IRC Messenger is no different from any other popular messaging program, such as AOL Instant Messenger or MSN Messenger. It is simply a program that lets you make a list of contacts, and when those contacts are online, you can chat with them.
However, when all the features and aspects of IRC Messenger are considered, it is much different from those other programs. For example: while AOL Instant Messenger works through the AOL network, and MSN Messenger works through the MSN network, IRC Messenger works through, of course, the IRC network.
For those of you who don't know, IRC stands for Internet Relay Chat, and is one of the oldest and most popular chat networks in use today. People from every imaginable location on the Earth congregate on this network, and IRC Messenger is simply a tool you can use to tap into that vast arena.
Technically, IRC Messenger is called a "client," which is used to connect to IRC "servers." The servers are what everyone who wants to use IRC has to connect to in order to communicate with others. They use clients to accomplish this. However, the great thing about IRC Messenger is that technical knowledge of IRC is not required, like it is in other clients. IRC Messenger will automatically connect for you, so you can just load it up, and begin! No other client makes it so easy.
