Chat on any (?) site

I came across a service called Gabbly. It uses Ajax to add a chat widget to a website which can then be used to facilitate chat between fellow-gabblers.

For example, the code to add to my website at is as follows:

<iframe src='' scrolling='no' style='width:300px; height:250px' frameborder='0'></iframe>

Of course, you'll need to register with them, i.e., give them a username a password and an email address, which they validate using a link they email you and expect you to click in order to invoke the account.

You can also initiate a chatter on any website from their site simply by entering a URL into a form and clicking submit.

Another nice thing I saw was an ability to get an RSS feed from a chatter box. I couldn't think of a use for this -- but it does look like a "cool" feature.

  1. Hello Yona,

    got to your blog recently why don't you check this one out... it's much better and much more simple, just implement the following code to your blog or goto for an example.

    Have fun!

    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase=",0,0,0" width="484" height="364" id="bchar" align="middle">
    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
    <param name="allowFullScreen" value="false" />
    <param name="movie" value="" />
    <param name="quality" value="high" />

    <param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />
    <param name="menu" value="false" />
    <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />

    <embed src="" wmode="transparent" menu="false" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="484" height="364" name="bchar" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" allowFullScreen="false" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="" />
