BlitzIn is a Windows program that shows you a chess board and lets you connect and play on the ICC. BlitzIn was the main Windows interface for ICC before Dasher and is still popular with many long-time members, especially those who prefer a command-line interface and are prepared to spend the time necessary to learn it. Unless you are already familiar with BlitzIn and prefer it, we highly recommend that you start with Dasher instead, which is easier for most new members to learn.
