Best live chat?

Hi,

I have a website and quite a few members have suggested that adding a chat room would be a great idea.

I'm searching for something I might be able to integrate well into my site.

Has anyone tried RumbleTalk or C-box?

I made a lot of research in
finding a chatroom for my website. I used envolve for a
while till they closed up, pitty. I tried IRC but I truly did not like
the look and feel and the “mess” of text in there.
I had several points which are important to me.
1
– First I needed a chat that can be seen in mobile (all versions) so I
narrowed down the search for html5 chat room that look good on both
mobile and pc.
2 – I needed a custom design, I needed my background to be black or transparent. This was very hard to find (my site is dark).
3 – I do not like to install the chat in my server as this is high cpu and resource consumer. So I need a chat service.
4 – Lastly, I needed the ability to add youtube videos and upload files.
I have checked several chats and only 2 met my needs, RumbleTalk and Cbox.
I choose RumbleTalk finally as it can be integrated into my page and not only as toolbar.

i have tested both of your suggestions above and they are very expensive.

i would suggest you try Chatwing. Chatwing is free for unlimited usage plus it has many custom features like the ability to upload your own emoticons which makes my chat room very active. I even have the iphone chatwing app on my phone so i can get alerts in real-time when people are chatting in my room or sending me private message. i know chatwing also has an ipad app too. i would recommend testing the chatwing for yourself.

Have you checked into Pure Chat. I was thinking of doing the same as you, but haven't had a chance to do the research yet. Curious of your final decision.

Why not IRC plus a web interface, for example KiwiIRC?

More technical users will definitely appreciate being able to use a client of their choosing to connect.
