University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign has developed a web
based interface to the IRC chat system.  You are free to try
it and let me know what you think.


1. All HTML interface, noframes
2. Manual or automatic updating of messages
3. Accesskeys to form controls
4. Use of headers to indicate new and old messages
