How webirc works:

  1. The user opens a mibbit client and requests a connect to, e.g., irc.blah.com
  2. The Mibbit backend checks irc.blah.com for matches in mibbit's webirc database
  3. If found the backend sends the user's IP along with a password (chosen by the server admin) to irc.blah.com
  4. The server checks all requests from 64.62.228.82 (webchat.mibbit.com) or 207.192.75.252 (widget.mibbit.com) for the correct password and then converts ident to "Mibbit" and @*.mibbit.com to the user's host name (most networks obfuscate the host for non ircops). The network now allows an (almost) unlimited number of users from mibbit's IP
