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. CGI:IRC has an interface similar to many GUI IRC clients, with a tab for each channel, userlist and options tab (when used in modern, version 5+ browsers). Older browsers degrade to a single windowed interface with a slower updating userlist.
