    Hello all,

    I am new member into this for asking for your suggestion. I am going to set up my web based chat room. Now a days setting web based chat room is a good idea? If yes, which one should I set? Do you have any ideas. I have little knowledge and heard about ChatWing. It's up to date and cost effective. Can I use ChatWing service?

    Please let me know. Thanks!

    Well I started researching on my own then. 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, Chatwing and Newchater. I choose Chatwing finally as it can be integrated into my page and not only as toolbar.

    hey guys i will give a quick update about my experience using Chatwing so far.

    1. most important, my users are very satisifed with it.

    2. it has been working really smooth and feels great to have a cloud chat and not rely on servers and hosting anymore.

    3. the Chatwing android and iOS app have been a greta way for myself and moderators to keep control of the chat and get alerts when their is new activity.

    4. my users also use the chatwing apps so they can stay connected to my website chats

    5. the chat has helped increase the number of visitors and also the amount of time they spend on my website.

    6. as far as pricing chatwing is by far the best value on the web, i pay $11.20 per month for unlimited usage in my chat, on other chat services they limit usage for say 250 users will cost you $50 per month. Chatwing also has a free version that let's you have unlimited usage too which is really nice just lacks a couple features i wanted like uploading my logo and hiding the chatwing name.

    conclusion, give Chatwing a try if your looking for a chat room to put on your website it's perfect.

    Bitlbee, WeeChat (Note: Encryption not enabled by default, but there is a FiSH encryption plugin available) and Hexchat (note, for Hexchat encryption is NOT set by default, you must 1st enable FLASHLiM plugin) are good choices... Bitlbee is probably the simplest without putting effort into it... Mozilla Thunderbird is pretty decent for IRC as well, but does not offer encrypted messaging... These are some of my top go to's...

    just tested the chatwing app builder and can confirm the app wizard available makes it straightforward to create an app. nice feature, the app supports Google admob ads so you can display banner ads and make money.
