Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

For one of my projects, I used iRC, which was good, except for two things:

  • The FreeNode web chat client (used Javascript) disconnected users frequently
  • Users who enter a room don't see past messages in that room.

I'm looking for a chat client that can fill these needs. To be explicit:

  • Allows me to set up a group chat
  • Anyone can enter the chat room (no trolls/spamz?)
  • 100% web-based option (no client downloading)
  • Stores history on the server
  • Users who log in can see recent history from the server
  • Free

What are my options?
