Think what you may, but you'd be wrong in that assumption. As you can tell from my post, I have dabbled with just about every chatbox you can think of - to include...
FlashChat, ASPChat (yes ASP - you'd be surprised what you can do with cookies), 123Chat, ProChatRooms, Off-Site Chats, CYBChat, Inferno, MCG Chat (which I paid for and mentioned it is in the process of being updated), as well as GCBOS (which I gave props too as well) and many many others... I hope this chat does work out great, it is the best "normal" chatbox released yet (for 4.0) - albeit with a few kinks. However my users demand an alert sound (which seems minor to some developers and is rarely found in these types of chat engines - minus MCG Chat) and I look for a chat I can easily integrate across the entire site without a lot of template problems - like the arcade, gameroom, photopost addons and other content (which is why I mention other addons such as arrowchat) - So yes, I mention it because had not someone mentioned it in a similar post here - I would not have known it existed....

Valter, everything works fine including the design only when sidebar is disabled. But when sidebar is enabled the chatbox (above footer) looks messy. Please fix
