mIRC doesn't work on a Mac and you should only ever get mIRC from one of the sites listed on the Download mIRC page.

6-3 Is there a version for Windows CE, WebTV, Mac or Linux?

No, sorry. mIRC just comes in two tastes for Windows; a 16 bit and a 32 bit one. These issues will work on Windows 3.x, Windows 95, 98, 2000, ME, XP, and NT, but not on Windows CE. mIRC also does not work on the Atari, Commodore, WebTV , Macintosh , UNIX or Linux operating systems. We have no plans to make mIRC versions for these systems in the future either. Sorry....

Several people have reported to use mIRC succesfully on OS/2-Win and on Linux with the Windows emulator Wine! I assume mIRC also works in a virtual Windows environment on the Macintosh but there also is a perfect IRC client for Mac's, written by Onno R. Tijdgat, called ircle.

All IRC programs for WebTV, Linux, Mac's etc. are perfectly mIRC compatible. With all IRC programs you will see all your friends using IRC with mIRC and vice versa.


But as Khaled stated "...but there also is a perfect IRC client for Mac's, written by Onno R. Tijdgat, called ircle"

Personally, my biggest qualm with there being no Mac mIRC client is that when I switched to Mac, I was forced to leave my favourite chat program behind, as well as my mIRC-script-based bot. I've tried running mIRC under Microsoft Virtual PC 7 (Windows XP) on my new PowerBook, which has a gig of RAM, and it ran hideously slow. It is not an alternative. What I would like is for at least one IRC client for Mac OS X to seamlessly support mIRC's scripting language. There's no way I have the time or knowledge to port an entire bot, as well as numerous miscellaneous aliases and popups and such for my personal client, to Perl or Python or some general programming language like that. (lol, I know I sound whiny, but it's true...I just started learning mIRCscript and now *poof* here I am without anything I'm able to customize the way I did mIRC!)
