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

This might have been asked already, but any plans to spread this tech out so we can use it elsewhere?

It would amazing to instantly add chat capability to a website without having to fuss about with IRC, etc etc.

Or is this a dumb question because it's already planned/already decided against :O

Fussing with IRC isn't that bad these days. The web chat clients that 5by5 and TWiT use are pretty sweet and easy to embed.

They use the freenode web chat interface. More techy users can always connect with their IRC clients if they wish.

I would also add that there's always Jabber as well. – cdeszaq Apr 3 '12 at 15:20
