WARNING! If four users are connected through the live chat client, IRC will disconnect ALL users connected through this client. We HIGHLY recommend you connect to the IRC through a real client (see below for details)
INSTRUCTIONS FOR A BETTER IRC CLIENT
If you’re dissatisfied with the in-browser IRC client (let’s face it, it’s pretty bad), we highly recommend you download and install a native IRC client for your operating system.
XChat 2 For Windows is a fantastic IRC client that’s easy to set up and connect with.
Use your Linux flavor’s repository installer to get xchat. For example, in Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install xchat
Colloquy is the best open-source IRC client for OSX
