Chatsum is the latest firefox-extension-for-chat-on-web-pages I learned about. My #7, but it seems to be online quite a while. There are chat entries from 751 days ago and screenshots show news pages 2 years ago.

The protocol is based on HTTP FORM POST from client to server and Javascript fragments from server to client. I sent a "test text" and the network shows something like:


as request and:

<script>uc([[755721, 'Wolfspelz', 'ff6600', 'fff4c7', 'test text', 1203106150]], 1203106150, 'Y01F');</script>

as response. Simple and effective. Nice design. But not many users as far as I can see. Seems, that the creator works on other projects now.
