You can manage our servers better... which, if it was more active, would more appealing, but since its empty 24/7 you can take that option as you wish.

Steam overlay supports a browser, so, yes you can.

To the first question I answer: A fast, reliable, tested and proved platform. Accessible easily from any computer with internet. With good moderator tools, 24/7 logging and a notification system.
To me, these are not novelty features, but important necessities.

The second question is harder to answer, but I'd say yes, since as you're there you make yourself available to people who aren't able to install steam on their current computer. Most likely people would be able to reach you faster due to the notifications (if you choose to use them). And you'd be able to monitor and run the server remotely as a server staff.

Okay, so long as the list of things steam has that irc doesn't is removed, because avatars and game notifications are even more superfluous than bots and scripting.

Is it just me or is steam getting worse every day?

We're too sexy for steam, it appears. It just can't handle 30+ people in chat for long periods of time. Maybe if more communities actually used group chats Valve would care to resolve the ghosting issue.
