The new network was called DALnet (named after its founder: dalvenjah), formed for better user service and more user and channel protections.
One of the more significant changes in DALnet was use of longer nicknames (the original ircd limit being 9 letters).
History showed most servers and users went with EFnet.
Once ANet disbanded, the name EFnet became meaningless, and once again it was the one and only IRC network.
Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is an application layer protocol that facilitates communication in the form of text.
The chat process works on a client/server networking model.
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.

IRC clients are computer programs that a user can install on their system.
These clients communicate with chat servers to transfer messages to other clients.
In November 1988, IRC had spread across the Internet and in the middle of 1989, there were some 40 servers worldwide.
