You may notice that http://www.mibbit.com now shows a brand new updated splash page
If you want to go straight to the chat client, simply update your bookmarks to http://www.mibbit.com/chat/
If you’ve already linked to mibbit using server or url params, they will automatically still work. For example, http://www.mibbit.com/?server=irc.mibbit.com&channel=%23mibbit will still work fine – it’ll redirect to the new URL.
The widget has been improved, so that it now shows any connection errors – this should make it far easier to debug when there is an irc server issue.
Stay tuned for some more updates tomorrow
