IceChat – an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) client that can be used in 64bit versions of Windows 7/8/8.1 and Windows 10.
IceChat is a very user friendly program that can be setup in a matter of minutes. IceChat is capable of connecting to multiple servers and channels all at once, with ease, so you can easily chat with your friends in your favorite channels.
IceChat has some unique features that set it apart from other similar programs. Most users truly enjoy the built in Emoticons. The Favorite Server Tree is truly fantastic, and because IceChat is built around its multi-server capabilities, it is an essential part of IceChat that makes it that much easier to use.
IceChat started in development in 2000, and has gone through many changes in its interface, design, and of course its many features.
IceChat is FreeWare, meaning anyone can use it, at no cost. IceChat 9 is open sourced, written in C#, and available at Github.
The main IceChat Support channel is located on Quakenet (irc.quakenet.org) in the #icechat channel. The IceChat 9 Support/Developer channel is located on Freenode in the #icechat channel.
