Ajax Chat & IM Libraries


Ever wanted to add a chatroom or instant messenger to your site, but just couldn't find one that did just what you needed? Unwieldy Studios has built a few ajax tools that might do the trick.

First, they have developed an ajax based instant messager  named "ajax im" that is compatible with all major browsers. Installing the script is fairly straight-forward and once setup, it will display a buddy list style messenger in a floating div on your page. The messenger is movable, resizable, as well as minimizable. Most of what you would expect is included, but no over-the-top bells & whistles. If you're interested take a look at the Ajax IM project homepage.

Second is their ajax chatroom, which I think is very useful in a variety of applications. The chatroom has most of the core features provided in Ajax IM, like the fluid and flexible UI. But the major advantage of the chatroom is that you can include it on multiple pages of your site and it will follow your users from page to page, retaining their information and chats. Here's a demo to see Ajax Chat in action.
