Live Chat Software

I know the hotly debated what is the best live chat software has come up a few times, but what about these new ones that include these new XMPP/jabber "open" solutions.

No more being locked down to the windows only application many good (great) old software still holds to heart (kayako grr).


The above three seem very good in their own ways, but none of them let you host it on your own server or offer an owned licenses solution. Huge let down imo, anyone know of anything reasonable?

p.s. I found one which lets you host and buy it our right for $400 (rip off) for only a basic function of a webform and XMPP backend. The interface looks pathetic and so does their website.

I use LiveZilla for live support and for me as long as the visitor can pop up an window and talk to me ... I can do support.

Shameful, no one actually read. We've been with Kayako for over 3 years, but their live support is still a windows only application even after our request 3 years ago and I'm assuming many more from others.

That's why these new XMPP/Jabber based chat software is of interest.

Hi Andrew,

May I ask why you are interested to host the live chat software on your own servers?

Livezilla has always been my app of choice for webchats. Its easy to setup, easy to teach, and most importantly, easy for the client to figure out.

Check into Openfire --

It is a xmpp/jabber based chat server... Also open source/free

Works rather well, we used to use it.
