We (the Thunderbird Chat developers) have had some talks with the Matrix
people, but haven't made any effort to integrate it as adding a new
protocol is a fairly large job. You can use's IRC integration
with Thunderbird Chat, but you cannot connect directly to the Matrix

Thunderbird Chat is completely unrelated to ChatZilla.

Please let me know if you have other questions,
