New IRC Client

Tuesday September 7th, 1999

Robert Ginda has checked in his IRC client into the tree. Like the XSLT engine, it's not built by default yet, and according to Rob "I'm working on gettting --enable-extension=irc to work, until then making it is too much of a kludge to publish :)".

We'll let you know when it's testable, but for now you can view the README or check out the code.

Thanks to Steve Morrison (who maintains our ChromeZone area) for the news.

It's not. It's a third-party component. Not part of the core in any way. Actually, just about all of mozilla is component based, and this is just another component that is not even loaded unless a script asks for it. Therefore, there is no reason to even have the component file on your system unless you specifically downlaod it or compile it.
