IceChat is an IRC client that enables you to connect to multiple servers at once, in order to talk to people from all over the world.
Once you have initiated the application with the clean interface, you can set your nickname and select a particular server to connect to.
So, you have a list of favorite servers displayed, but you can delete, edit them or add new ones. Also, you can create a list of favorite channels to join, as well as edit your buddy list.
Additionally, you can select actions specific to an IRC client, such as op or de-op the selected nickname, voice or de-voice, ban, display info, half-op or de-half-op, open a private window with a specific user, kick or view whois information.
Furthermore, you can use a color picker and view a list of available emoticons, configure the colors and fonts for the current theme, start a DCC chat session, set your status to "away", change nick colors, send files to users, as well as select the interface language.
But you can also search for channels and networks, minimize IceChat to tray, use an editor for aliases, popup menus, scripts, variables and user levels, as well as configure program settings (e.g. timestamp events, virus scanner command line, auto away, sound events, flood prevention).
The program uses a very low amount of system resources and includes a comprehensive help file which revolves around IRC commands. We haven't come across any problems during our tests.
IceChat may not offer a never-seen-before solution when it comes to using an IRC client, but the interface is completely customizable. We strongly recommend this tool to all users.
