I am looking for a chat program to put on my web site so that somebody can go to my web page and just click a link and a window pops up. Does anybody know of any good software to do that?

I don't have any ideas specifically, but I have a tip for looking.

Its not gonna be an app for "apache" persay, its gonna be an app written in some language. What you want is a php chat client or an AJAX chat client. So if your gooling around look for those (and Ruby aswell)

Apache can onyl serve html pages, nothing more. In order to do what you want, you're going to need something more powerful. I would definitely look into AJAX and Ruby for what you want to do.

Have a look at PHPOpenChat if you want a php based chat program..
If you want AJAX based, you can try LACE (demo) i don't think it supports Pvt Messaging though..

For java based chat program you may try RealChat or Parachat

Or for ruby programmers, you can use brand new comet architecture to create your own chat program:

but really you should learn how to ask a question.

read this:

you didn't specify which language or framework and platform?
