ShitChat is a Java 1.4.x IRC client, trying to be as full-featured as possible, without compromising a wish for simplicity. It startet as a school-project, and the developers were not too optimistic about the result, therefore the name

"ShitChat - the shittiest java IRC client evah!"

We are working on getting an operational beta release of ShitChat published. For now, all there exists is a pre-apha developers edition.


The alpha can be downloaded from
