    This is by far the best addition to each of my websites. If you have a chat, or plan to get one, download this addon.

    I've used cometchat for years, and this is much better. They're aren't even in the same league as Chat by Siropu.

    Best chatbox addon for XF you could possibly fine. I was a big fan of Taigachat but I couldn't see myself shelling out an additional $40 a month for an addon that's not as feature packed and easy to manage. Thanks again for the great addon. Definitely worth the money!

    I downloaded and installed Siropu's chat last night but didn't get around to enabling it until this evening. Our users, starved for chat, jumped in with both feet and it was like they'd been there forever. This is a "must have" if you want chat capability on your Xenforo forum. Easy and straightforward to install, set up and so far the administration is a breeze.
