Thread: Good Chat Software.
02-14-2003, 08:13 AM #1RyanGuest
Can anyone suggest a good chat software that we can add to our site. A free software would be great but we also don't mind paying for it. We just want to add something very professional to our site - perhaps a java chat software. They are so many out there and we are confused on which one to take. We would appreciate any comments.

Edit: Were you refering to an actual chatroom-type script or a 'live' customer support solution? If the latter, then the below still applies.
I would suggest Kayako's LiveResponse (www.kayako.com). It is effecient, robust, and has an attractive interface. Nine stars in my book due to price, but I find it well worth it.

if you are looking for a live chat room for your site, you can try phpmychat.
I heard it was really unstable though.

I wouldnt try phpmychat, its very slow and unstable. I installed it once and never used it again."Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots.

www.jpilot.com is a web-based irc client program

Jpilot.com is a good idea
have you heard of irc before???
well jpilot is a web based client that connects to an irc server for chat
there are many freely available irc servers to use, and is a good chatting enviroment
i could offer you a free irc server as well, but like i said, there are many free servers out there.
If you are a bit 'un sure' how it all works, then email me or send me a pm, and i will help you further

you need to find out if your host allows irc chatting though.
Usually most hosts avoid it due to the fact that it uses up system resources fast.

i think irc clients should be ok, but not as irc server.

i see. i used to host a irc client software (jirc from jpilot) over a free shared host (forgot which one already) and i do not seem to have trouble with the free host.
