I suggest starting a new chatroom that can be used on multiple platforms for more such as XChat, mIRC and Chatzilla. For instance as my problems with xat as follows.
1. Lack of understanding
- the users list as it does not clearly provide information on who is online or not
2. Lack of accessibility
- requires a browser to be open to this page
Although this is not overly required, it will be an easier platform to chat on.
