Peekko Chat

Peekko Chat is a new Firefox extension that makes every web page a place where people can congregate. It adds a toolbar to Firefox that shows how many people are in that page's chat room and allows you to instantly connect with them.

Three Step Guide

  1. Install peekko-0.3.4.xpi (requires Firefox 1.5).

  2. Click on button then click "Join".

  3. There's no step three!

See the QuickStart guide for more information.

While this is getting off the ground, I'd recommend sticking to for instant gratification.
