Stuffit Expander 5.0


Snak is a program that will let you participate in discussions in Internet Relay Chat (IRC) channels. IRC is a service that uses the Internet to connect a large number of servers all over the world. Individuals then connect to a nearby server with the help of a client program like Snak and join one or more of the thousands of channels that are available. Anything that is typed into the channel will be seen by the other members and you can then have a real-time conversation with people all over the world.

At any given time the largest of the IRC networks may have as many as 15.000 participants and almost anyone can find a channel that talks about a topic that is of interest to that particular person.
