Firefly’s Chat-On-A-Webpage : Try it out

Firefly’s Chat-On-A-Webpage Goes Live.: Found via GigaOm, Firefly is a cool little Javascript app that sits on tops of your blog or webpage and allows unfettered chatting and interaction ability for visitors. I have enabled it on WeblogToolsCollection for the time being for people to check it out. Enable at the bottom of the page (look for a small bar), click anywhere on the page and chat away! If you want to put it on your own blog, visit WARNING: It is addictive in an “Ooo! Shiny!” sort of way. :)

[EDIT] Now gone from this blog. Please use the demo on the page to test it out.

    This is exactly as stated – addictive in a cute-cool way, and I just spent an hour adding it to my blog (I don’t think it’s hard to do, I’m just not very good at style edits!). Now let’s see if anybody uses it . . .

    Hi Mark,
    Check your config, because the only thing chat says is, “Error: Could not ping server.”

    Nice gadget. But I guess you have to be a Twitter user so as to not be anonimous when you chat in this way. I wonder if you will ever have something like a conversation actually running with this, though. Somehow I think it’s not going to be that easy.

    Mitch: The chat server is faltering under load. It is working now but can be up or down.

    Oh, man, that could be dangerous. Thanks for the tip.

  1. […] Dopo qualche ora di lavoro a tutti fa piacere divertirti un po’, specialmente se poi non dobbiamo installare nessun programma e possiamo farlo comodamente all’interno di un browser. Ecco per questo un simpatico sito Firefly che ci permette di chattare, di comunicare in modo divertente poiché ognuno scrive quello che vuole, è infatti il luogo ideale anche per spammare, poiché non ci sono regole. Firefly si basa su Flash e riciede Mozilla Firefox o Internet Explorer, ma Opera, anche se non ufficialmente supportato, lo regge egregiamente. L’idea che sta alla base è molto semplice, e nello stesso tempo divertente e innovativa, tanto da chiederci perché non ci abbiamo pensato prima noi? In parte è possibile perché possiamo inserire lo script tra i tag body del nostro sito per permettere a tutti di fare questo chat-spam. [Via] […]
