So many years mIRC's icon has been the same

Do you like photoshop? IconXP? Are you an artist? Prove it!

The mIRC icon did used to be different - you can see it by opening the About dialog in the latest version of mIRC and clicking on the mIRC logo - it will flick to the old one.

People are always welcome to submit their ideas to Khaled...personally I see nothing wrong with the icon as it is now and think it looks good, goes well with the program and is generally...perfect in every way grin - It might be worth giving thanks at this point to Richard "Budman" Jones who created/contributed the current mIRC logo - he and others appear in the Acknowledgements sections of the help file.

i acctually thought of the same icon but with more modern. It has only four colours, whereas millions are available!

I once pondered on why the old logo had a powerpoint in it.

personally I like the current icon and like it MUCH better than the older one, but if mirc had a new icon or two in it, it wouldnt bother me at all as long as I could use the (now) current one if I chose to still smile It's funny cause I think (shows when I grew up if ever lol) of the "C" in the icon as Pacman lol - wokka wokka wokka

I personally think it's to illustrate the connection aspect of mIRC to servers. Either that or a metaphore for the power of mIRC as a program.

For some strange small group of Firefox users, possibly users of v0.9.2, it doesn't seem you can link directly to downloads using a link like that, the item Marantz means is here.

It's there. Make sure you're not caching an old version of the page, too.

New 4 critical bugs today in Explorer wink
I'm with Mozilla sice 1.4 and with Thunderbird&Firebird&Firefox.. The flashblock just ideal for flash banners wink Just love that browser..
Hope in future at least in Europe the IE will be removed from default Windows..

Eehh.. About mIRC icon.. I like it too.. But the current logo from that forum must be updated..

I've been using Mozilla since 0.9.2.1 (came with RedHat Linux 7.2). What took you people so long? :tongue:
