Ice Chat looks like a mixture of mIRC and Xchat. It is highly customized and uses nearly the same scripting language mIRC does. It is very easy to use and can be downloaded at http://www.icechat.net/site
Connect to IRC
Go to View > Server list > Add new server (as SwiftIRC is not added to the default list). Fill in the server's hostname
Use "next" and fill in the port. By default port 6667 is added which is a good port to connect to. You may leave it if you want.
Add the channels you wish to autojoin on connect to the third box, seperated by a comma.
Fill in the nickname you wish to use on the network.
Add the commands you wish to trigger on connect
Confirm all the details you added.
Now find the network you just added in the list at the left side of your Ice Chat and use connect (at the bottom). You can edit the details you submitted by using "edit server".
Go to Options > Highlight settings and check the "Enable Text Highlighting".
Go to Add to add a word to the list of highlighted words. Add a word and choose a colour you wish it to become when it's said. You can also choose to make the channel flash and you can choose whether the highlight triggers in the channel, PM or both.
