Internet Relay Chat

Internet Relay Chat or IRC for short is a chat protocol that has been around since 1988[1].

It is still popular today via systems such as EFnet[2], DALnet[3], Freenode[4], etc.

IRC Clients

Freenode has a web based char client called Kiwi IRC

You can find a comprehensive list of IRC clients with a comparison of features here[5] .


When connecting to IRC your IP address is visible to everyone. In an effort to protect your privacy you can use a VPN, TOR, or a Bouncer to redirect and mask your IP.
