This chat system is still on its early stages of development.
Currently, there are number of bugs which we are still trying to fix. In
the future release of our chat client, we are looking forward to
developing an enhanced IRC chat system which will support common IRC
commands, multiple channel connections, and private chat sessions. We are
also designing a better user interface, so watch out for it.
