Rebuilding HipChat with React.js

When HipChat joined Atlassian, it had four clients: web, Adobe Air (Windows, OS X, and Linux), iOS, and an Android app. One of the first goals for the HipChat team was to replace the Air client with a native desktop client for OS X, Windows, and Linux. This kept our small team (at the time) very busy. Because of this focus on delivering first-class app experiences, our web client didn't receive the benefit of updates we were making elsewhere. That sucks, and we're fixing it.
