A modern IRC: v3

A few months ago I wrote a short note about IRC.

I discovered IRC v3 a set of specifications which will make up modern IRC.
I found the link on Peers Community website.

Navigating on the website, I discovered a ton of IRC apps:

  • https://hexchat.github.io/ - IRC client free for both Windows and Unix-like systems
  • https://quasseldroid.info/ - Makes IRC fun again – open a client anywhere, connect to your core, and have all your favourite channels and networks right there.
  • https://irccloud.com/ - IRC client with a future. Stay connected, chat from anywhere, and never miss a message.
  • https://kiwiirc.com/ - A hand-crafted IRC client that you can enjoy. Designed to be used easily and freely.
  • https://irssi.org/ - Chat Client. IRC built-in. Multi-protocol friendly for module authors.
  • https://inspircd.org/ - Modular Internet Relay Chat (IRC) server written in C++ for Linux, BSD, Windows and macOS systems.
  • https://oragono.io/ - Modern, experimental IRC server written in Go. Provides the majority of features that IRC users expect today.

This is exciting, because IRC is an open protocol, just like e-mail. It is small and easy and the ecosystem is huge.
And I don’t like Slack too much.
