Itzl a very nice chat on pages

10.08.2006

Itzl shows users as small figures on the page. They can walk around and have chat balloons above their head. The system has the usual chat input, emote, popular sites, profile, etc. features. It looks very complete. It is also very pretty and looks professional.

Itzl is one of the prefix-your-URL-and-get-an-IFRAME systems. This makes it #3. Currently Firefox only. I suppose they use XPCOM objects for their communication. This will have to be ported to XMLHTTPRequest on IE or re-implemented as an IE browser extension.

Update: A quick Ethereal shows, that the protocol is HTTP based (who would have assumed otherwise). So, porting communication to IE should be easy. I still wonder what FF features they need.
