As of Mozilla 0.8.1, using the /quit command in Chatzilla gives an error "Sorry, "quit" not implemented". The only way to log off of a network is to close Chatzilla or connect to another server, which isn't very graceful.
/quit used to disconnect you from whatever network you issued the command from, but not exit chatzilla, while /exit disconnected you from all networks *and* exited chatzilla. It was impossible to remember which did which (as you can probably imagine). So, I renamed /quit to /disconnect, and left /quit to error with "not implemented". In retrospect not the best idea, because it leads people to believe that there is no way to exit the app. I'll alias quit to exit.

wouldn't it be better to say use if you want to disconnect from a server or network please use /disconnect <server/network> if you want to exit chatzilla (which will disconnect you from all servers and dcc connections) please use /exit
Most clients use /quit to disconnect. It's the standard (well, as standard as anything is in IRC) method of logging off. It's sort of disconcerting to try to use it and be confronted with an error, or a message saying that a different command should be used instead. I think /quit should be aliased to /disconnect, myself. On other clients, using /quit won't cut off your DCC connections, and AFAIK on clients that support multiple server connections it only disconnects from a single server.
