In previews years we had a working web environment to get people
chatting without the need of an IRC client. This year we had timvideos
which was broke most of the time. This may be one of the reasons.
I'd be glad to see WebRTC being used in next DCs, but I'm not sure how
we should set it. No idea about using text-to-speech engines.
