Can we get a page with mibbit intergrated or a other free irc client to #mozillians as a page for new contributors

it would make it easier then linking to chatzilla

Not sure what you mean, if you put an irc://irc.mozilla.org/mozillians link somewhere, it AFAIK already opens with Mibbit in Firefox anyhow.

For new contributors who are new to Mozilla would be useful if they don't have irc
OS: Windows 7 → All
Hardware: x86_64 → All

You mean a web-based IRC client for new contributors so they don't have to install a client right away? Do we know if this is actually a road block to contribute?

I don't think this should be on mozilla.org or mozillians.org and should be stand-alone and it should be another team outside of WebProd responsible for a web-based IRC client implementation.

Since this request was originally filed, a wide variety of Mozillians have ended up switching to https://www.irccloud.com/ as their preferred web-based IRC client, serving the original purpose of this bug with no further effort required here.

Closing this as WORKSFORME as the public cloud IRC service provided by IRCCloud meets all above-stated requirements.
