Live Ajax chat is one of those Comet 101 kind of examples (as RSS readers were to Ajax back in the day!).
We saw a couple of items from this meme recently.
Then we get to Red tag crazy (or w00t! for girls) who told us about their live chat implementation in the wild:
We wanted this to be really fun for our shoppers, and chicks like to chat. Then came the idea, “what if we have a chat system right on our home page?”. The pre-requisites were: it has to be super easy to use, not require any sign-up, no plugins, and it has to support thousands of users at once. Solution = jQuery Ajax.
