    In short, you will get for what you pay for.

    You can't just hide your ip address, you need to use someone's ip address and people rarely (intentionally) let you do that for free. Look for vpn providers perhaps, they'll give you the least chance of failure.

    I just said "You may INTERESTED in this project.". I did not say it is an interesting project.

    By the way, I create this.

    Yup, that's precisely what Tor was designed to do. You can use it for any service you go out on the internet with (browser, irc, etc.)

    Whether it's easy or not depends entirely on you.

    Tor.

    To hide your ip address you can choose some very good service like this one.

    I would also advise TOR, BUT I highly advise you use the TOR bundle and READ the TOR documentation.

    The tor bundle (browser/pidgin/im/irc) is offline/aborted afaik. The tor browser bundle is alive. Its easy. +1

    But tor can be used for irc also, but not via an "easy" bundle. Freenode supports it with the SASL protocol.

    For more privacy, which is more then an ip changer, I would suggest a VPN like service. (And with tide browser settings.)
