The primary use of a chat room is to share information via text with a group of other users.
Generally speaking, the ability to converse with multiple people in the same conversation differentiates chat rooms from instant messaging programs, which are more typically designed for one-to-one communication.
The users in a particular chat room are generally connected via a shared interest or other similar connection, and chat rooms exist catering for a wide range of subjects.
(Warnings and messages are most certainly irrelevant, so please check only for errors – the JS console can be opened by pressing Ctrl-Shift-J in FF/Chrome) No errors, just a metric ton of messages and Firefox saying “dropped declaration.” Chat stays stuck at the “Game info loaded” screen for me, while still having the loading graphic. I’m using Firefox 5.0—the only browser that seems capable of handling Flash content, aha.
