Gmail Like Chat With jQuery


Gmail chat is a nice feature of Gmail. If you are thinking to create a gmail like chat  for your web application, you do not need to worry. Although chat is a complex task but there are some availbale scripts which are easy to use and integrate. In this post, I am adding a free chat script that works similar to Gmail Chat. See the snapshot to know how to it works on web pages.

This script has following features:

  1.  Gmail style bottom right display of chat boxes
  2.  Keeps chat boxes open and stores state (data) even when pages are browsed/refreshed similar to Facebook
  3.  Displays “Sent at…” after 3 minutes of inactivity
  4.  Displays “X says…” & blinks chat boxes when window is not in focus
  5.  Minimize and close chat boxes
  6.  Auto-resize of text input box
  7.  Auto-scrolling of chat text
  8.  Auto-back-off polling policy (hits the server less-often when chat activity is low)
  9.  Extremely simple to integrate into existing site
