As of April 2011, the top 100 IRC networks served more than half a million users at a time, with hundreds of thousands of channels operating on a total of roughly 1,500 servers out of roughly 3,200 servers worldwide. IRC usage has been declining steadily since 2003, losing 60% of its users (from 1 million to about 400,000 in 2012) and half of its channels (from half a million in 2003).

Jarkko intended to extend the BBS software he administered, to allow news in the style, real time discussions and similar BBS features. The first part he implemented was the chat part, which he did with borrowed parts written by his friends Jyrki Kuoppala and Jukka Pihl. The first IRC network was running on a single server named tolsun.oulu.fi.
Oikarinen found inspiration in a chat system known as, which operated on the. Jyrki Kuoppala pushed Jarkko to ask Oulu University to free the IRC code so that it also could be run outside of Oulu, and after they finally got it released, Jyrki Kuoppala immediately installed another server. This was the first 'irc network'. Jarkko got some friends at the and to start running IRC servers when his number of users increased and other universities soon followed. At this time Jarkko realized that the rest of the BBS features probably wouldn't fit in his program.
Jarkko got in touch with people at the. They had their own IRC network running and wanted to connect to the Finnish network. They had obtained the program from one of Jarkko's friends, Vijay Subramaniam—the first non-Finnish person to use IRC.
IRC then grew larger and got used on the entire Finnish national network—Funet—and then connected to, the Scandinavian branch of the Internet. In November 1988, IRC had spread across the Internet and in the middle of 1989, there were some 40 servers worldwide.
EFnet [ ] In August 1990, the first major disagreement took place in the IRC world. The 'A-net' (Anarchy net) included a server named eris.berkeley.edu. It was all open, required no passwords and had no limit on the number of connects. As Greg 'wumpus' Lindahl explains: 'it had a wildcard server line, so people were hooking up servers and everyone'. The 'Eris Free Network',, made the eris machine the first to be Q-lined (Q for quarantine) from IRC. In wumpus' words again: 'Eris refused to remove that line, so I formed EFnet.
It wasn't much of a fight; I got all the hubs to join, and almost everyone else got carried along.' A-net was formed with the eris servers, EFnet was formed with the non-eris servers.

It was previously used in a similar fashion during the. Of these and other events are kept in the archive. The Undernet fork [ ] Another fork effort, the first that really made a big and lasting difference, was initiated by 'Wildthang' in the U.S. October 1992 (it forked off the EFnet ircd version 2.8.10). It was meant to be just a test network to develop bots on but it quickly grew to a network 'for friends and their friends'. In Europe and Canada a separate new network was being worked on and in December the French servers connected to the Canadian ones, and by the end of the month, the French and Canadian network was connected to the US one, forming the network that later came to be called 'The '. The 'undernetters' wanted to take ircd further in an attempt to make it less bandwidth consumptive and to try to sort out the channel chaos ( and ) that EFnet started to suffer from.
