The following is called ParaChat. Please close and ignore any pop-ups. This is a type of web internet chat relay (IRC). It is not the best but is very simple and useful.
1) Wait for the green chat box to appear then type in a nickname in the "user name" box.
2) Press the "ok, connect" button.
3) If other names are located in the upper left-hand box, then you can chat with these people by typing in the lower box and clicking on "send".
