Better Chatroom -- IRC Channel


From what I've heard, the meebo chatroom has some flaws... I figure its worth a shot of trying again in IRC. I won't go into the details, but it should be a way better method of chatting ;-)

I suggest Chatzilla for a client. There's also [ mibbit] which is online and has an embeddable widget, but I don't really like it as much.

I want an IRC channel, and god-dangit I'm going to make one!
Its #instructables on

If you're already using something like Pidgin or Trillian, IRC should probably be on there, just pick a username, server is "", then just join the chat #instructables

If you aren't -- MIRC Chatzilla is a good client...

Anyway... just wanted to let y'all know it exists :P

XChat is good, as is Pidgin's build-in IRC.

I think this is pretty relevent.
I'll try to get a mibbit widget but in the meantime you can either set it up yourself, or use something like Chatzilla

For Mibbit:
IRC: Freenode (the dropdown box, change from "Mibbit webirc")
Nick: duh ;-)
Channel: #instructables
I second this bumping action!

Bumpus? Bumping?! The puns are irresistable!

Bumping this because it was enjoyable, and I recently started going on IRC again.

I am stuck it seems, I get Chatzilla up but am finding no way to "connect" the link to Pidgin doesn't seem to work...
zachninme (author)  Goodhart10 years ago
Try typing: /connect /join #instructables And google Pidgin if you're still still still having trouble ;-)
no commands match "connect"

Did you try the join?
