mIRC Review

Felix Cheng
The most popular IRC client ever
A review of mIRC by Felix Cheng

mIRC is certainly the most-used IRC client both last decade, the one before and even today. It is a shareware chat program which offers users some very flexible scripting features and a ton of customization options.

For those that aren't aware of what IRC is, it can basically be described as a somewhat primitive form of text-based Internet chat which dates back to the early 90s.

When installing mIRC, the wizard will guide you through a number of options including backups, automatic software updates and more. You may also run this program as a portable application from a USB drive.

After installation of mIRC has finished, you will be able to connect to a number of pre-defined IRC networks or connect to networks or servers not listed.

This program is definitely a classic and very easy-to-use once you've got the hang of it. This trial version contains all of the features of a registered version.

mIRC can text chat, join chat rooms and chat with groups.

mIRC is licensed as Shareware for the Windows operating system / platform from instant messaging software and can be used as a free trial until the trial period ends (after an unspecified number of days). The mIRC 7.52 demo is available to all software users as a free download with potential restrictions and is not necessarily the download of the full version.

Though this program tested positive for virus tests, some people don't view it as a virus or malware. This could mean toolbars or system modifications.

This irc client software is filed under:
  • mIRC Download
  • Portable Software
  • Free Software Download

Compatibility with this irc client software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 8.1, 7, Vista and XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version may be available from mIRC.

mIRC has been picked by our editors as excellent.
