Does what it say. Integration with Joomla is very easy.
Ease of use
In the begining I thought It would be difficult to install, but If you know the basics, it is a straight forward. logic, you get use it.
not needed so far ..
It depends on the skills that somebody has. personally I found the implementation clear enough, so I do not need more documentation.
I used this to: To make a good, and most of all, safe chat room for my site

Not quite ready

This chat is not for people looking for a plug and play type of extensions. First, the installation of the extension is awkward to say the least and if you visit the developer's website you will a long list of people seeking help with installation. You cannot install this extension using the normal joomla installation process because this extension is a standalone application, which in turn means you need to hack joomla in order to even change the position of the module.

The developer is responsive but he seems overreached since so many people are asking for help. In my experience, communication was very slow. How slow? Well, in my case I purchased the extension in early July and needed help to embed the application in a page since it is not a typical extension you can position wherever you want but a month later still nothing.

The extension itself is not quite functional right out of the box. It is very unstable and can go blank or totally disappear! Unless, you are a very good programmer yourself, stay away from this chat. Out of the box, it cannot even differentiate between users and guests!

I see a lot of good reviews for the chat but if you go to the developer's website and check the freichat support section, you will see everything I say here is true.
Generally, I don't give no reviews, but I went out my way to register just so I can give a review and give my thoughts and opinions about this extension. First, I would like to say that I've been using this extension for a little over three years now. This is an excellent chat program, it was back then (prior to it being listed on the Joomla! extension directory) and it is to this day. The support is EXCEPTIONAL, especially for a free program. They respond quickly and are willing to do what they can to help. The extension is easy to install and runs very smoothly! The settings are plentiful. I really like this extension, but even more important, I like the team behind it. I would recommend this to anyone! FIVE STARS all the way! Great extension, great team and all and all a great company!
So easy to install and with such a good back end for setting up, could not be any easier, easily recommended, after trying many different chat programs this one does what it says on the tin!!
this extension really awusome.

first i instaled this im fall in love with this extension, i recomend it for all who want chat

This extension offers more than you would expect from a commercial one. The configuration is simple and straight-forward. Very recommendable!
By far the best free chat extension for Joomla. The support is excellent through their forum. My questions were asked almost immediately.

Bravo et Merci !

Bravo et merci !
This module is the best I have ever experienced. You may find a better module, but for that you have to pay. In the world of FREE EXTENSIONS for JOOMLA, you willnever find a better module than this, not according to the functionality but the EXCELLENT SUPPORT. I could not imagine that the support for a FREE EXTENSION can BE THIS GOOD. The makers give the support personally, not only in their support forum, but through emails. And they try to the ultimate to solve the problem. I can only explain my satisfaction by these words that I am SATISFIED TO THE POWER INFINITY regarding the module and the SUPPORT of the makers. Excellent work guys and please accept my heartfelt thanks and my ULTIMATE GRATITUDE.
