Great and simple module! Can just recommend it! After installation it didn't work (my own fault :-)), so I posted in the forum and the problem was solved within 2 hours!

Okay...I might have given it 4.5 stars if that was possible. But definitely more of a 5 than a 4. The only problem was that it didn't work perfectly at first in my 'test' site while I was upgrading from Joomla 1.5 to 1.7. I thought I was in for trouble. But I got a reply to my help request very quickly, telling me that it should work when I move my site from a subfolder and go live, and even gave me a fix if I wanted it to work under my test environment. (I was almost ready to go live so I didn't bother with that fix.)

Bingo...just as predicted, as soon as I took my upgraded site live, AjaxChat worked other fix needed. It does what it advertises cleanly and efficiently.

Good product/good support. Can't ask for anything more.

This is a perfect add on if you are looking for a instant messaging system similar to facebook. I'm relatively new to joomla. I had no problems installing it but I did find that it wasn't working perfectly because of another add on and the support was great! I highly recommend this AjaxChat.

AjaxChat is easy to install and so easy to use that anyone who has tried a little chatting before will know how to use it :)

It's a big plus that it's possible to set one's chat status to available, busy, idle or invisible.

And the support is really fast! Within a couple of hours, sometimes minutes, I received help.

I give this component and module the highest rating for these reasons :)

I needed a simple chat client that would be cross-browser compatible (ID, Chrome, Firefox, Safari and mobileSafari) for my JomSocial site. AjaxChat works like a charm. I had a minor issue and the developer and I worked to get it repaired. I couldn't be happier. The problem was fixed quickly and professionally.

At first I was a bit disappointed because I had problems using this product. However, this developer is extremely responsive. Though I feel the module could be improved (e.g., assigned to one page and yet usable globally), I am confident that the product will grow into something very good and reliable. It's worth the money I paid for it, and I can confidently recommend it to others.

This is an excellent extension, and works as advertised.

However, the options available in the administrative back-end to customize its behavior are limited. To modify the appearance of the chat-box, you have to modify the css files in the module directory (which isn't a big deal, in and of itself). Several style parameters are, however, hard-coded in the .js files (the vertical position of the chat box being one of them). Not an issue if you know what you're doing, of course, but I would have appreciated some styling options in the back-end.

On the other hand, I find the absence of an option to set the refresh behavior (rate, conditions) of the ajax calls the extension uses to check for users/messages a little more serious. On a site with only one user (the admin) connected, it sends requests every second or so. These are tiny, tiny requests, but I feel like I shouldn't need to modify files to restrict when and how often these ajax calls are made.

Nevertheless, this is a great piece of software, and well worth the purchase if it looks like what you need.

I had a small problem with this program so virginsoft fixed it right away.. then when I crashed my own site (ooops) and had to re-install everything they helped me out again ... a great program!

I read the two reviews and decided to buy this. Installed with no problems though prakash from Virgin soft had to update a small line of coding, which he did instantly. Great customer service, and fantastic extension.

I highly recommend.

This AjaxChat module is just what I was looking for. It is really simple and enable my site users to communicate quickly with each other. It has a really simple interface ala Gmail.

Support is just amazing. I had issues with my website and the developer resolved those really fast. He his also really open to new ideas to improve the component/module.
