AJChat is a great and simple solution to create public chatrooms that utilizes Ajax to bring you real-time chatting. I have been testing around with it with Michael Arrington (See his review) and we liked it. The main thing that sparked my interest was that you can create your own chat in no time and then include it into your site. Simply go to AJChat, type in a name, and then click, “Enter.” So, I created a test SolutionWatch chatroom where Mike, Jeff Clavier and I gave it our rounds of testing. You can see a more active stream of communication going on over at TechCrunch’s Chat in his review of AJChat.
Update: It looks like the server is down at the moment. Sorry! It was a lot of fun while it was up and we had a pretty active stream of conversation using it at TechCrunch. I saw a lot of familar names in it too, so it was pretty exciting to talk to everyone. The creators of AJChat have gotten back to me and said they are working on the problems, so lets hope that it gets up again soon.
Update: AJChat has made a post about the service being down. Here is a message from the AJChat Blog that states their service was deactivated by their hosting provider and they are switching to a new host soon.
Update: Kiat has informed me in the comments that the service is back up and running. Go give it a try. Arrington, up for another run? :)
