Most of chat is "web technologies" in that the entire backend is written
Mozilla-specific interfaces, of course, the most obvious of which is
low-level TCP sockets. I'm sure there are other APIs too.
The user interface would need to be converted from XUL to HTML, however.
super high performance aspects (i.e. treeview for mail), currently the
view can get really slow when you have many many messages (e.g. a busy
IRC channel left open for weeks).
