What the hell is 'IRC'?
IRC itself simply stands for Internet Relay Chat, it's the old skool version of MSN, and it still wins.
The GTANet Java Client can be used by any web browser that supports java (which is most of them) and should work fine providing you're not behind a proxy or anything crazy like that (your school or place of work for example, may not be able to connect with this). To discuss GTA5 your best bet is the GTA V Channel - your nickname is simply the name you wish to go by while chatting.
mIRC is an incredibly popular IRC client, to the untrained eye it may look suspiciously ugly but rest assured it's one of the best clients around for Windows. It's even possible to customize the way it looks using scripts if you do some research and find out how. If you use a client like mIRC then you'll be able to click irc:// links on web pages and connect straight up. In order to use mIRC you need to fill in the details on the 'Connect' page in Options, GTANet wont be listed by default in the networks list, but if you close all windows other than the main one you can type in the bottom line:
Some of the 'general' chat clients such as Trillian can also connect to IRC networks, if you're uncertain of any details that you need then look below:
