The main client is the client that can be connected to by going to http://mibbit.com/chat/. The main client is built for those who wish to join multiple servers.

The main client is made up of two main areas: the header and the client.


The header is the top part of the page. It contains the logo, Kenneth, which when hovered over gives the version of the client. Next to Kenneth is four lines of information.

The first line shows whether you are connected or not. A green dot is connected, a red dot is not. It then shows the total users online using Mibbit. This is not the total amount of users on IRC, as many do not use Mibbit. Finally, if you are connected, it shows your lag in miliseconds (1/1000 of a second) to the Mibbit server. The lag indicator does not give the lag to individual IRC Servers.

The second line shows how many IRC Connections you have active and how many connections are starting.

The third line gives the login and registration fields, once the buttons on the fourth line ask for them. Registration is simple compared to most sites, and gives access to preferences, profile, autoidentify, and more features. Once logged in, the line will state: "Logged in as nick". Before anything happens though, this line is blank.

The fourth line gives two sets of information. When not logged in, it shows "Login | Create an account | Password reminder". When logged in, it shows "Account | Prefs | Profile | Channels | Logs | Logout".

Finally, there is a textual ad-banner from Google to the right of these four lines.

Home Tab

The Home tab is the default tab loaded when Mibbit starts up.
