I think you're a little confused about what IRC is.

IRC stands for Internet Relay Chat, and there are lots of servers around that you connect to to chat to other people using the same server. To connect to an irc server, you need an IRC client. mIRC is one IRC client, but not the only one. What exactly is it that you want to stream?

the irc client. I've heard you can run it off the internet instead of having to download it.

There are IRC clients you can run off the internet, but mIRC isn't one of them. Usually if there's some kind of online client you can use for a certain network you will find it on their website.

Most of the IRC clients that work in that manner, are done in javascript, and you still have to download from the website.
The big difference is that, with a javascript IRC client, some of the coding is in the Javascript program, which you would've already downloaded and installed, so you don't have a full program downloading and installing each time.

examples are: pjirc (java) and cgi:irc (cgi)


If it ain't broken, don't fix it!
