  • We use http://sourceforge.net/projects/phpmychat. I too have been thinking about the subject as I really need something that I can hook Jabber into.

    These things all seem to use some sort of database in the background.

    The overall issue is the refresh mechanism. I see lots of use of the META tag to refresh. And now I've experienced how different browsers implement that. Some do it fast and clean. Some slow and awkward. The slow and awkward ones are bad enough that users won't use it.
    • Just in case you're still interested, I found a CGI chat program that works optionally with either flat files or a DBI-accessible database today, called ralfchat, on sourceforge. I need to go home to check it out, but it sounds pretty good. Apparently it has good internationalization support and is in use in several countries besides mine. :)
