Chat Areas On The Internet
In Addition To IRC Chat, There Are Many Other Web-Based Chat Rooms
In compiling a list of Chat Areas, we've found that there are literally hundreds of sites to chat. Here we will showcase the most popular chat sites. If you have a favorite site that's not included here, please email us with the info.
Phreik is as close
to Yahoo! and MSN chat as you can get. Chatmag has checked out their site,
and recommends it as a good alternative to Yahoo!
Worlds Browser-This is one of
the all-around coolest freebies on the
Web. It's a browser that lets you access
AlphaWorld, a unique, 3D virtual
community populated by real people. The
Active Worlds universe boasts hundreds
of thousands of users and thousands of
kilometers of virtual territory. You can
explore over 100 worlds in real-time, 3D,
high-color graphics. You can even "own"
land and build anything you'd like on
your property, from a simple house to an
elaborate palace (a process that is quite
easy). Active Worlds is more than a piece
of software; it's a way of life! (Note: you
need a Pentium with Win 95/NT and 24
megs of hard drive space.)
A free service that
offers chat rooms for all ages. Visitors
here can choose from over 380 chat
rooms. Setting up an account is easy and

program, you can hold "virtual meetings."

A impressive, state-of-the-art
free visual chat service. Here, you select
an "avatar" (a graphical representation of
yourself) and then you may roam around
large, colorful graphical worlds, populated
by real people (who're also representated
by avatars). No downloads are required;
it's all Java-based (which means you
should have a relatively new browser). If
you haven't tried this sort of chat before,
give it a shot: it's quite fun. There's a
helpful tuturial for newbies.
- This free service lets you chat
in "public rooms" and gives you the
ability to create your own private room.
Just click on "Create Room," and follow
the instructions. Once a week, each room
created will have its contents cleared and
after 7 days of inactivity, these rooms will
automatically be erased. This is a good
chat service from Australia (although the
site loads quickly for those in the U.S.)
Chat - Palace is a easy-to-use
major chat service, with regularly
scheduled live events and hundreds of
virtual graphical environments to roam
around. You can access this innovative
chat community for free as a "guest" for
as long as you like. Just download the
software client to get started. You can
also experience "InstantPalace," which
lets you check out the service without the
hassle of a download (but your browser
needs to support Java). If you become a
"member," (which costs $39.95), you get
extra bells and whistles.
