mIRC on Apple Macs

Sorry but mIRC only runs on the Windows operating system, so it will not work on the Apple Mac. There are no plans to make an Apple Mac version of mIRC at this time.

There are a number of IRC clients for the Apple Mac that you can try out that work very much like mIRC, such as: Colloquy, LimeChat, Textual, Babbel, Ircle or Snak.

All of these IRC clients can be used to connect to the same IRC networks as with mIRC, so you will see all of your friends on all of the same channels.

Alternatively, if you really want to use mIRC on the Apple Mac, there are a number of "virtualization" products for Apple Mac computers that allow you to run Windows applications on a Mac. Or you can simply install a version of Windows using Apple Mac's Bootcamp feature and run all of your favorite Windows applications that way.

mIRC on Linux

Sorry but mIRC only runs on the Windows operating system, so it will not work on Linux. There are no plans to make a version of mIRC that will work on Linux at this time.

Linux has quite a few native IRC clients, although none of them are quite like mIRC.

If you really want to run mIRC on Linux, it is possible to do so using Wine, which is an Open Source implementation of Windows for Linux. You can find out more about Wine at http://www.winehq.com.

Recent versions of mIRC run quite well under Wine.

mIRC on Mobiles and Tablets

Sorry but mIRC only runs on the Windows operating system, so it will not work on your mobile or tablet. There are no plans to make a version of mIRC that will work on mobiles or tablets at this time.

There are quite a few IRC clients written specifically for mobiles and tablets, so it is very likely that you can find one for your particular device.
