Cool Tools Episode 19 Podcast: Mibbit

Mibbit is a tool that allows people to connect to IRC, an internet chat service. This tool is incredibly useful for getting people to communicate because the chat program can run right in a browser using Ajax. People can put it on their blogs or webpages and have visitors gathering and talking about stuff in real time.

Thanks again, Ken, for your podcast about Mibbit. So, I understand that there might be a security concern about using IRC directly and that Mibbit avoids this by allowing use of IRC without needing to download software, correct? Do you know how much Mibbit is used as an alternative to other chat/IM tools? Thanks. -- David
