For over 25+
years, IRC has been what we know it to be
today. A great medium to chat with friends, support online communities,
and do business. But when you look back upon those decades, you see other
text mediums have innovated and evolved, whereas IRC
has remained the same.
went from purely text, to integrated with graphics, and in the end became
a completely different experience for surfers. One can't help but look at
the evolutions of the web, email, and other internet systems and feel left
out wondering "where is all of our
cool stuff?" and "where
are our upgrades?". With
the lack of anything new, IRC has sadly shed hundreds of thousands of
users and had relatively few new people migrate to it vs. the other
messaging technologies in the last decade. Many people have felt the best
days of IRC were behind it.
the introduction of ETGiRC,
this trend is about to change. The future of
IRC is going to be bright and full of possibilities once more! "A
complete evolutional leap" is the
most accurate description as to what ETGiRC is. It's not
just another chat client, some small upgrade/change, or some feature added
to IRC. It is a complete shift in IRC,
in what we see, in how we use it, in what it offers us, and in how we
interact and experience it.
IRC, as a chat service, is really
comprised of a plethora of 500+ individual IRC Networks, all offering
different options and services customized to the needs of their users.
This is actually one of the key reasons IRC has been successful with so
many networks offering unique and personal experiences to their users, but
also is the prime reason it also hasn't really been doing well in the last
decade. As there is no central authority that could go and implement new
things into the protocol or systems that would improve the experience for
everyone on all networks. This is where ETGiRC comes in. ETGiRC
is network independent, meaning you can
keep using your favorite IRC Networks and enjoying the personal service
they provide you, and the advanced features ETGiRC offers integrate with
all of those various networks seamlessly with no changes needed on
their or your parts!
Design Your Chat Room/Channel's
The most important feature of ETGiRC is the introduction of customized
chat rooms. No longer will every chat
channel look the same! This not only helps with easily identifying what
channel you are talking in, but will provide the users of each chat
room/channel with a customized and unique
experience. Representatives who run each
respective channel on each IRC Network will be able to design the
appearance and features of their chat room in much the same way they can
design a custom webpage for their clan, organization, or company. They can
add graphics, change positions and sizes of elements, change colors, add
and customize button graphics/shapes, add tabs, add news feeds, and
customize the look and feel of their channel in countless ways.
Theme your room to be fun, or theme it to be serious. Theme it on your
channel's subject, or theme it based on your website!
Whatever you do..
Just Theme It!

Play Games With Friends:

games. It supports the first 2 types internally with it's own game system,
and the 3rd via a game query system and buddy list.
ETGiRC lets you play
fun text and sprite games with friends
from right inside the client! Great games that are developed by our own
Game Studio, as well as games developed by 3rd party studios/groups for
our open platform.
Game Query System will
obtain regional server lists
from our own Master Server! This allows you to obtain servers only
from the geographical regional locations you want to play in. Why bother
downloading and pinging a list of servers where over half of the servers
are half way around the world and you'd never play on them to begin
with? This system eliminates that problem. With query support
for the most popular games, and new games
always being added, this is a great solution for FPS gamers looking for
