The secret is to find the actual URL and load it in QWebView. Since initially it presents a login page, this particular client also automatically fills the username and password for you, getting them from its own login page. Overall, the code is very simple and does not even reach 200 lines, including some rudimentary error handling (wrong password, failed login). The user interface was created completely using Qt Designer. Careful readers might notice that I deliberately added the flick support (kinetic scrolling) using Flick Charm. This quick-and-dirty chat client was completed in less than quarter an hour.
