So, after a brief initial session with input from mouser, allen, m_s, jgpaiva and tsaint, it appears to be quite interesting. Not as good as IRC or your favorite IM client, but for folks who are not comfortable with those, it is easy to use and all it requires for private chat is a clear website (there are gabbly sessions going on at google and others...) and send your friend or relative a link. An interesting note: tsaint noticed that it got through a proxy that was blocking irc and icq type stuff. This may be a security concern in some circles, we'll see. Hmmm.. maybe it'll be a way for those in restricted countries (China, Iran, etc.) to make contact. I could also see this as a way of getting feedback from website beta testing, or web-based customer service implementation for small businesses, or... the possibilities aren't quite endless, but there is a lot of potential.
As far as features, it looks somewhat like a typical chat client without all the bells and whistles. It can be docked into a frame at the right side or bottom of your browser window, sports an RSS feed and of course, you can change your name and the chat window has a history, which is nice. That's pretty much it, check it out...

an applet is too heavy. I was thinking about a irc-bound shout box or so

I might code it myself[1]; I know its technically possible.

[1] this will take time, much time, a LONG time

Is there a reason you linked us to the Terms of Service?

How about just http://www.mobber.com/ for everyone as lazy as I am.

Looks like Mobber is more of a traditional chat network thing (you gotta sign up) whereas Gabbly is a kind of free-for-all. On Gabbly's forum, there has been much discussion about this issue; make it a sign-in thing so you always have the same name, or leave it as it is so anybody can jump in anywhere. Looks like Mobber took the former...

In the same vein, with a bit of weirdness thrown in, there's Quek. to try it, sign in (just name your 'Quek') and tell it "go to donationcoder.com"

OK looks like gabbly got another update and things have been a little shaky lately, but anyways...

New Features:

Mute- Click the username you want to ignore

Private - The gabbly home page gives you private chats just go http://gabbly.com/Private/donationcoder/forum and you'll see what I mean...

Login - Previously gabbly was a free-for-all in that you could sign in as any name you want. If you want to claim a nick and a 32x32 avatar, go to http://gabbly.com and hit the Login tab...

Check it out...
