We’d like to inform you that IRCcloud is NOT allowed on Station51. It’s a web-based client that stores ALL your information on their server in plain text – this includes all logs and your passwords.
For your own security we have banned that client and recommend you use your homeline, server or a normal BNC.
Mibbit is also not allowed, since every user can see your IP when you connect through it.
Be safe when you’re online – don’t use unsecure clients!

From this site you are able to view what channels are available, who’s online and what countries they are from.
