    Hi,

    If you want chat application for 1 agent and 1 concurrent chat only, Zopim may be the best free one.

    If you want to spend some money for chat software then I would suggest ProvideSupport Live chat software. It is very much user friendly and works with multiple platforms. It comes with desktop based application with wide range of features.

    With best regards,

    Agreed the best free one is Zopim, Livezilla used to be free but isn't anymore that was the popular choice in the day.

    They again offer a free edition - I think provided it's for single admin-user only.

    Ah yes they do, suppose they lost most of their client base.

    I like Zopim the most if you are looking for free. I know they only let you have 1 representative, but if you are looking for free you shouldn't need much more than 1 operator.

    +1 for Purechat ; a ton of options, does not appear to limit # of users, and best of all free!

    Honestly most of the free software is crap. I have used Open Web Messenger for testing and I found that I liked it and I personally prefer self-hosted software to something hosted by others.

    But this doesn't even compare to a pro solution like Kayako.

    Livezilla use to be the favorable live chat system, however it turned down by their commercial version. Zopim is preferred now thought.

    WebhostingTalk have a wiki with a big list of providers.

    Also, Free isnt always better. You need to figure out what kind of message you are sending to your customers. Using a slow, free platform may actually send a bad message.

    Pro versions vary in price and features. There are some VERY cheap options out there that are 1000% better than free whilst still being almost free.

    Don't forget to make sure your live chat application automatically pops up and/or has a huge, distracting image you have to manually close so that your visitors can be effectively irritated whenever they visit.

    Go with zopim, if you want only one agent.
    In case you want more than one, so take a startup of one year with startups.livechatinc.com . I like them more than zopim.
