Create a version of Chat
Zilla for Android
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:22.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/22.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20130618035212 Steps to reproduce: I really don't expect this bug to go anywhere. But I'm filing it anyway. I use AndChat now for my Android tablet. But it doesn't have many CZ features. No Aliases. No real understanding of networks. No join UI. Etc. I figure a mobile version of CZ wouldn't be as capable as the desktop version, but it is still needed. If others are interested, I suggest making this bug a meta-bug. Attach other bugs to it listing the things needed for it to happen.
Since filing this bug, I learned that a version of XUL Runner is being discussed for Android. The other thing mentioned was something called GeckoView. I don't really know what that is, but maybe someone else does.
Severity: normal → enhancement
One thing I think should be considered as part of this would be a custom built-in virtual keyboard as an alternative to the one the user selected as what they want for Android. Features in that keyboard would include: * Understanding of commands and aliases--This might leave out those provided by the server, but at least list them. * Include common IRC terms like BRB in the dictionary. * After nick auto-complete, turn Shift back on. (When I use the Go Keyboard with AndChat, Shift is off in this situation.)
