IceChat 9.7 RC7.3


Once you install IceChat you will have to create a unique nickname which can be changed later if you change your mind. The maximum allowed nickname length is nine symbols. On the first run you can import the settings from the previous 7th version. Then you need to choose a server to which you want to be connected but later you can add more servers. Finally the program interface is in front of you and the real fun can start. A sleek and simplified user interface welcomes you and this is just the beginning. You can customize the themes and the menu styles in many various ways which is the biggest advantage of the program. Any of the panels and the toolbars can be hidden or shown for your convenience.

Basic Operations

IceChat works like any regular IRC (Internet Relay Chat) client and through the command line you can execute most of the available commands. The left panel has one tab but the right one has three: Nick List, Favorite Channels and Buddy List. The control buttons for each panel are mounted at the bottom. Color Picker and Help icons are placed in the lower left corner.


IceChat 9.7 can connect you with many people around the world or with your neighbor from the upper floor. Whatever the case is we strongly recommend this software app to you because it is easy to use and has a lot of features and options. During our tests it did not crash or stop responding so try it yourself and see what it is capable of.
