IRC
Acronym for Internet Relay Chat.

Windows users use mIRC (www.mirc.com) and other users use xIRC or BitchX (www.bitchx.org) to connect to an IRC server.

Once connected to a server people can message each other in private or in public channels.

IRC
IRC (Internet Relay Chat) is a chat protocol initially developed as a means of communication back in the days of BBS (Bulletin Board System).

Clients connect to a specified server which is part of a collection of servers known as an IRC network. If a client is to send a message to a user on a different server within the same IRC network, the message is relayed between the servers and then to the other client.

IRC is a text only means of communication, non-text communications or files are sent via IRC's file transfer protocol, known as DCC.

Unlike other chat protocols, IRC does not require you to have an account that you sign in with, but most IRC networks offer you the ability to reserve your nickname.

Common IRC clients include X-Chat, mIRC, Irssi and BitchX.

IRC
Short for Internet Relay Chat. Is a great and more advanced way of talking to people.
Although I mostly use AIM, because everyone has it, IRC is for the more advanced user, you hardly ever see any n00bs on any channels.

IRC
Internet Relay Chat; It's how hackers talk when they don't want to be overheard. It's a pretty primitive chat program. Think of it like shipping channels in the ocean: you can't see them until a boat cuts through the water leaving a wake. If two boats meet in the middle of the ocean to swap a load of illegal drugs, you have to catch them in realtime. Otherwise there's no record of the meeting left behind.
