Just tested the webchat. It appears to be operational.

What kind of error or issue do you encounter?

Alternatively, you can install a dedicated IRC client. Connection info can be found here.

Searching for that phrase nets me a few hits about people being unable to connect to webchat - but never a real answer. I think the webchat is trying to connect to a specific server close to you which is down.

I'd recommend you to try a real IRC client instead. There you can also switch to a specific server if the default one you connect to doesn't work.
