    This is a valid concern and it wouldn't wonder me if this amount of users would kill your server.

    Is there a noticable effect on performance?
    Do members actually use them?
    Which one is easier to integrate with a vB 4 forum?

    I'm interested in any and all feedback along those lines.
    I would be interested in feedback from big boards as well. It seems to me that cometchat has more functions than arrowchat. There are a lot of people that have reported problems with cometchat.
    Functionality that is missing in cometchat is the ability to report chat messages, vbulletin usergroup permissions, show the number of members in chat on the main forum page. Arrowchat is jquery based. For both arrowchat as cometchat I find the chat room screen too narrow for big boards. As soon as more than a few messages are entered it becomes hard to keep track of and a sentence is broken up and spread over 3 lines.
    Arrowchat has video functionality which is nice. Cometchat does not have this.

    While I do not remember exactly which do and which dont offer facebook like 1 to 1 chat, there are many that do. Not all of them call it facebook chat. Some call it private IM. Some have it as an addon. For some applications its real hard to find out, so I emailed them all to ask them. its a shame that the result of all that is inaccessible.
    I remember that Flashcoms, Pro Chat, 123flashchat have facebook like 1 to 1 chat. Im sure there were others as well. But as said its often hard to find.

    Thanks for that link Alfa, but there aren't more facebook like chat solutions as comet and arrowchat.

    Any more experiences with either Comet Chat or Arrow Chat?

    Yep... there is little that isn't already around nowadays, that may only need a little tweaking or fine tuning to get it the way you want. Big believer in not reinventing the wheel.
