Install or build and run the server source and run the chat.html file. Note: flash websockets doesn't appear to work locally; test it in a websocket-enabled browser or host a server elsewhere and connect to it over IP / username.
You can connect to server.alchemywebsockets.net for a test server as well.
Feel free to try out the online example at chat.alchemywebsockets.net
Enter in a server name and port (or used the pre-filled defaults.) Click connect, then enter a username and register. You can now chat with anyone online. Connects and disconnects are announced, as is the total number of online people (hover over the number to see how many.)
You can also type "/nick Name" to change your current name to "Name".
