<h1>About Us</h1>
<p><a href="http://twitter.com/spadoll" target="_blank"><img src="http://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/65203101/beth_s_school_pics_043.jpg" width="75" height="75" border="0" align="left"></a><a href="http://twitter.com/chrismatthieu" target="_blank"><img src="http://a2.twimg.com/profile_images/918916153/SuperChrisSmall.jpg" width="75" height="75" border="0" align="left"></a>CHATS.iO is a new social chat site created by <a href="http://twitter.com/spadoll" target="_blank">@spadoll</a> and <a href="http://twitter.com/chrismatthieu" target="_blank">@chrismatthieu</a>. The goal of this site is to create a space where conversations can happen dynamically and naturally without logins or registrations. We were aiming to create a cross between Twitter and IRC without setting up accounts or installing software. Chats can be public or private and can be linked to by including any topic/chatroom name in the URL like <a href="http://chats.io/party">http://chats.io/party</a>.
</p>
<p>
You can join multiple chatrooms at once by using the <b>/join</b> command such as: <b>/join party</b> or <b>/join mychat</b>. You can leave a chatroom at any time using the <b>/leave</b> command in the chatroom that you want to leave. You can also change your name at anytime using the <b>/nick</b> command such as: <b>/nick chris</b>.
</p>
<p>
The technology is written in <a href="http://nodejs.org">Node.JS</a> and deployed on <a href="http://nodester.com">Nodester</a>. Node.JS is the latest event-driven technology designed for real-time communications. CHATS.iO uses websockets to push messages to the users' browsers immediately as messages are sent.
