facebook-like chat

I really wanted to have a facebook-like chat. Unfortunately, I couldn't find one so i made one. Not as fancy as the one in facebook, but this is as close as i could get, functionality-wise...

The problem is i haven't tested its performance on heavy traffic...

I didn't include the avatar feature cause i guess it is trivial once you get the user's id in the chat(to tell you the truth, i just got lazy =P).



here's the link to the demo:

let me know your thoughts...

enjoy!

  3. we need a scroll bar encase the "whos online" list is longer than the div - though when i add a scroll bar to the div with overflow:auto - the div moves position which is very odd.
