Mibbit documentation

Mibbit is an online chat client, primarily supporting IRC. IRC is a long established protocol for online chat and messaging, with millions of users. Mibbit supports a variety of Platforms including the main PC browsers, and the iPhone.

To get up and running with Mibbit as soon as you can, try the QuickStartGuide. If you'd like to customize the client to your own liking, you can set your own Preferences.

Mibbit has several features found in desktop clients, as well as some unique features such as typing notify, away status, scroll back on channel join, and extended whois information.

You may connect to any IRC server you wish with Mibbit, but you should be aware that all Mibbit IRC connections come from the same IP address. Most IRC servers have a limit for the number of simultaneous connections per IP. We have negotiated increases in these limits with many servers, on which you should always be able to connect without issues. We also support the WEBIRC protocol with some servers which allows us to forward users hostnames on directly to the irc server. This is desirable, as then glines, cloaks, bans all work as with a standard desktop client.

Mibbit is still under development, so if you do experience a bug, please report it

If there are any features you'd like to see implemented, please feel free to add them to the [[WishList].
