Amit at Digital Inspiration has a brief review of three embedded chat options; MeeboMe, Stickam, and Gabbly. I played with MeeboMe a couple of weeks ago and found it simple to use, but didn't like having to remember to be logged in to the Meebo page at all times. I haven't tried the other two he mentions. I still use Chatango on my university sites. What I like best is that they offer a little taskbar widget so I can sign in and out from my desktop, and receive a little notification there if someone initiates a chat, or if I've missed one. Wow, it seems I've been using Chatango for two years now - where does the time go?
