Right now I am playing around with an IRC client that can be used as easy as a web chat but has the advantages of a full program, e.g. can be opened locally from desktop and without browser and keep all your settings, like a nickname or styles (color designs). No IRC knowledge necessary, basically the only thing you need to do is pick a nickname and then you can start chatting. Strictly speaking, not even that is necessary if you don't mind chatting with a random nickname ;-)
The client is only working on Windows right now (might change later). It can be customized for any community, obviously the one offered here got a n-ice.org branding and is preset to join our IRC network and our server channels. If you would like to help me testing it you can get it the eXirc.mini.exe here and use it instead of the webchat:
I would be glad if you help testing it and let us know about your experience with it or any bugs you find directly on our chat.
Download the executable file and save it in a place where it can create additional files (it's writing logs to the same folder). Recommendation is to create a new folder named "eXirc.mini" in your "My Documents" folder and save the file there. Afterwards run it from there.
Don't run the file directly from your downloads list/folder of your browser as it would most probably prevent eXirc.mini from starting properly.
Disclaimer: The IRC client has to be considered early alpha stage and might have lots of bugs. Use at your own risk!Monday, 21 April 2014, 23:16 [UTC]
