  • Where communities hang out

    Scrollback is a beautiful, open source text chat service designed for communities. Scrollback chat rooms can be embedded in websites and linked with Twitter hashtags or IRC channels.

  • Text chat within your website

    Sites like the MixFlavor comic blog use Scrollback to turn visitors into a friendly community. People who chat stay longer and return more often.

  • A back-channel for your conference

    Scrollback, used at events like JSConf Asia, have allowed attendees to network more freely, share anecdotes related to the talks and have extended QA with speakers.

  • A friendly portal to your IRC channel

    Projects like Mozilla put their IRC channel on their website using Scrollback, so that visitors truly learn why it’s called an open-source community.
