Idiota, i don't think Ville meant an entirely new system that is not IRC, rather that he would a) have an option for people to connect from the monkkonen.net site via a browser-based client or b) host the channel on monkkonen.net
Actually, i don't think he meant "b)", either, now that i think about it.
Alternatively, Ville might not be entirely familiar with the inner workings of Internet IRC-relay chat and doesn't exactly know what he said, either.
Also, Ville - mibbit is rather easy to use, though the free widget version has ads. This little bit here will create a mibbit window which uses a paper skin (somewhat similar to the monkkonen.net page) and connects directly to the #monkkonenchat channel.
