New #mozillazine channel at

Wednesday September 15th, 1999

We've decided that mozillaZine needed it's own IRC channel so that non-developers (and developers, too, if they're so inclined) would have a place to chat without bothering the developer conversations going on in #mozilla. Also, Terry has set up 'zinebot', so just do

/msg zinebot help
to get a list of commands. My hope is that we can do biweekly or monthly discussions where we get a developer to come in and answer your questions regarding specific areas of the Mozilla code. Stay tuned, and we'll let you know what develops.

You can find IRC clients for Windows at Stroud's website, or you can find apps for your particular platform at If you have a particular app you're fond of, tell us about it in our forum.

Robert Ginda is working on an IRC client for Mozilla, but I don't believe it's in the nightly builds yet.

stop annoying people who are trying to do work in #mozilla with questions about when there will be a released product. Go away

i do honestly think it's better than all the rest, of course (else I wouldn't have written it that way), and I'm extremely fond of it and wouldn't use anything else... but you may detect a slight bias... ;)

(non-Win [portable] version planned but not this year, sorry)

ircle ( is a good irc client for macOS. That's what everyone here in macdev at nscp uses. Worth the $15.

We need more mac folks lurking around! Please join us on mozillazine!
