There are a few different methods that may be used to find channels/rooms. Which one is best depends on your preference and the type of client you are using.

If you are using the Mibbit full-featured client or desktop client, as opposed to the Mibbit Widget, the following methods are applicable:

  • Look for the tab at the top that is labeled the name of the server you are connected to:
     Example:
        Clicking the "Mibbit" tab (in case you are connected to the server irc.mibbit.net)
        lists all of the publicly-accessible channels on that server, in paginated form.
        You mayb also search the list by entering your desired keywords. 
     Example:
        To list all channels on irc.mibbit.net, browse to http://search.mibbit.com/channels/Mibbit
     Example:
        To list channels on irc.mibbit.net, browse to http://searchirc.com/search.php?SCHANS=1&SSORT=SIZE&N=Mibbit
  • The command line version of the /list command is used as follows:
     /list [keyword1 [keyword2]] [-min <minimum_users>] [-max <maximum_users>]
     Where the keywords are evaluated as "WHERE topic (or #chan) contain keyword1 AND keyword2" etc (case insensitive), e.g.,
     Example1:
       /list tes mib
       results in:
          # #test (5) [+ntr]  #test Welcome to the Mibbit Test channel. This is for general testing...

     Example2:
       /list -min 10
          lists only channels with at least ten users

The Mibbit Widget can utilize only the following methods:

  http://search.mibbit.com/channels/
  http://searchirc.com/
  See above for usage instructions for these methods.
  

Note: It is not advisable to type only /list (without a keyword). The resulting list of channels can be so large that it may cause your browser to on larger networks.
