Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Current chat is gorgeous, but I want a minimalistic experience. No animations, no avatars, no stars or favorites, no sounds -- just chat and user list.

Could we get an option to switch between full and lite versions of chat?

@Jared: I need to start following that blog... seems all of my "We have X?!" questions are answered by "Yes, its on [blog link]." Anyway, thanks for that link – TheLQ Jul 15 '10 at 3:37
@Lord There was a meta post about it too, but it's easy to miss :) – Michael Mrozek Jul 15 '10 at 4:38

@Marc I've fixed the link. To future viewers, if the video disappears again, search for "Louis C.K. talks on Conan O'brien about technology" to find it elsewhere. Great video. – Adam Davis Aug 10 '11 at 23:39

There is a now mobile version of chat for iPhone / Android that works quite well in our testing.
