ICC Dasher is the recommended Windows program for connecting and playing on the Internet Chess Club. Designed as the replacement for ICC's classic Windows software, BlitzIn, Dasher offers much the same functionality in a more intuitive graphical user interface especially designed to allow new members to quickly find their way around ICC, while adding such powerful new features as an embedded chess-engine.
Some key features:
* Chess engine for off-line play and examine-mode analysis
* Also integrates with the commercial "Junior" engine
* Nice new piece sets
* Settings dialog allowing a lot of customization
* Preview of board display options
* Country flags for played and observed games and when viewing player profiles
* Tabbed console
* Popup chat windows
* Tournament interface
* New examine mode markings
* Figurine algebraic notation
* Channels list
* Profile window
* Bughouse buttons
* Contextual help
* A skinned interface
* Menu icons, larger toolbar buttons, and in general, a slicker look
