The heading says it is,

I want an IRC client, but i cant seem to find the right one.

I want one that puts highlighted messages into a seperate window so i can deal with them seperately so i know who is actually talking to me.

i cant find any IRC client that does this for me currently.

Im currently running ice chat.. Nice program, but doesnt seem to have this feature from whati see.

Preferably one that is easy to set up, but i can do technical if thats all there is to offer.

if you need any more info because ive (probably) been too vague, let me know :)

Have a good afternoon all,

mIRC + a script will do what you want. Check out etc.

mIRC is not free, it has a free trial period. You can get a coupon for $10 USD registration once the trial ends (regular price is $20 USD).
