It was also very popular for gaming clans to meet in order to coordinate themselves better. These days almost every website has a channel on some IRC network. Though it's not totally relevant to the ability to chat, most people who go on IRC don't know how to use most of the commands available to them. This is because they are retarded.

IRC is a place where people of all types go to chat and share files. IRC was very popular in the late 90s and early 00s for warez. It was also very popular for gaming clans to meet in order to coordinate themselves better.

You can connect to the chat right now, right in your browser, without any extra setup. Visit the webchat page for LURKMORE IRC chat, enter any username and hit Connect. That's it, you're ready to chat.
