Skabble just started with an interesting virtual presence application. Skabble is an instant messenger with a special focus on meeting people on web pages.

There is a small indicator on every web page in the lower left corner (similar to weblin and RocketOn) that shows how many people are on the same page. You can click on it and open a kind of browser "sidebar" at the lower border, which shows a chat window. You chat with people on the same domain name or sub-domain.

You can chat with people on the same page, but also (and interestingly) with people visiting other similar pages. Web pages are categorized and you can click on the category. Categories are (currently?) drawn from the DMOZ open directory project. This means that only big sites are categorized. But it is a very interesting idea.
