DarkerIRC is a Java applet which provides IRC client functionality. It was written to be highly configurable (through the parameter tags and configuration file) and still easy to install and maintain. It can connect to any server or IRC network using the binary version, which contains a self-signed certificate.
This release adds support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 7. IE7 no longer requires the workaround for plugin detection that IE6 required.
