Slack offers persistent chat rooms organized by topic, as well as private groups and direct messaging. All content inside Slack is searchable from one search box. Slack integrates with a large number of third-party services and supports community-built integrations. Major integrations include services such as Google Drive, Dropbox, Heroku, Crashlytics, GitHub and Zendesk. Some sources also think that Slack is such an innovation that it will replace IRC one day.
ScudCloud uses the QT library + Webkit to render the web version of Slack, but using the QWebkit-Native bridge to improve desktop integration with:
multiple teams support,
native system notifications,
count of unread direct mentions at launcher/sytray icon,
