An extract from the Amirc web site follows

AmIRC was the first VaporWare application to be shown to the Amiga world. Its author, Oliver Wagner, has worked too many late nights on the program to count, and continues to update it to this day.

AmIRC's main strengths lie in its interface - it's one of the easiest IRC clients to use on any platform, yet it also keeps the power users happy with advanced ARexx scripting and its ability to use compiled executeable plugins. It also features a URL grabber to capture any URLs mentioned in any channels or query windows, a lag-o-meter to measure your system's lag from the server, and strong builtin flood protection including a staggered output queue to stop you flooding yourself off the server.

Please remember, AmIRC is shareware. If you use it, please register the software and help support Amiga software development.
