We did have an IRC chat at one point though I can't remember why it was put to the side. I believe it was much harder to moderate and site staff members didn't get automatic moderating power there. I was a chat mod for the longest time even though I was a regular member at the time.

I believe the IRC chat was killed for a reason so I doubt that's coming back.

IRC won't be coming back, and the admins generously continue to pay for the AddonChat, which works very well for out needs. We recently even upgraded to a mobile version which allows even more people to participate, but unfortunately, there's nothing else we can do for this chat. It's based in Java and we can't just "add another page" to encompass the very small percentage of visitors who use the forum on non-Java compatible platforms, unfortunately.

Yes!

Here's the link to the mobile site of our chat. It doesn't use Java, and works fine on desktops.

If it's anything like mibbit/was mibbit, you have to log a registered user in to your registered username (unless you went without), then log the chat room in, and give yourself moderator status. It's kind of a lengthy process.

Both rooms support very few commands, like /a or /me which prints a message without the username tag ([Typhlosion]), but rather just the username.

[Typhlosion]: Some message
Typhlosion Some message

You could see available commands with /help

As mentioned, both should support the same commands, which can be seen by using /help or looking on the addon chat site
