Projects / CGI:IRC


CGI:IRC is a Perl/CGI program that allows you to use IRC from a Web browser without having to have access to an IRC port. It does not use Java, but it does need a browser capable of rendering frames. It can be used on a Web page to allow users to chat, or it can be used to access chat from behind a firewall.

            I've been using this on my site for over a year now with no problems. Config allows you to limit channels and servers to join, and the interface works in every graphical browser I've tried.
