This applications beats the s*** out of both mIRC and XChat for the scriptability, features and GUI.

If you like mIRC or XChat, then you will like this even more.


Yes I am shocked that all of the streamers I see online use mIRC when this is soooo much better. Also XChat and mIRC cost $$$ on windows. Heck you can get a script that makes it look and act just like mIRC.

Xchat is $$$, not Xchat-wdk though.

EDIT : Xchat-wdk is now known as HexCHat
