Gabbly (via Digg) is a new application that embeds a chat window in any web page. It seems to be based on web proxying and iframes: You think you’re looking at the target website, e.g. digg.com, but you’re actually looking at gabbly.com with an iframe for digg.com and an iframe above that for the chat window. The URL in this case is http://gabbly.com/digg.com.
The system is similar to Quek, which does something similar but with little Quek avatars running around the page. Unfortunately, it’s never been that stable.
