My question today is when will we see a “web 2.0” of IRC? I sit on an IRC network today, struggling with the pre-1990 interface and wondering why I was wasting my time with it. With all the problems that happen with the servers, the DDOS attacks and the kids, it really isn’t worth it. Then I remember that I really do need a chatroom for my site, and I really need to use IRC since there is no other alternative.
I realize that there are AJAX chat rooms, but they are lacking in features. I want something that runs like IRC, but has a 2006 interface and easier to use. Can anyone give me that?
