AmIRC – a client for the IRC Internet Relay Chat protocol, originally developed by Oliver Wagner and Jamie van den Berge.

The main features of AmIRC are:
– UPnP port forwarding for DCC and IdentD.
– Turbo and Passive DCC support.
– Advanced Low Level Plugin API.
– Single Window Iconification.
– Lag-o-meter shows lag from the server.
– Individual window logging.
– Intuitive channel window with user list and mode display.
– ARexx port includes event trapping.
– IRCNet and UnderNet extensions.
– Oper and clone announcement.
– Builtin IdentD, disables itself if needed.
– Bind sound effects, auto deiconify or ARexx to events.
– Last nick history, TAB key cycles through.
– URL grabber saves any URLs to send to your web browser.
– Supports colored text for both input (WYSIWIG) and output.
– CTCP/DCC flood protection.
– Time-stamping of lines and inline clickable URLs.
As of 6th July 2011 AmIRC is freeware, and all demo version limitations have been removed.
