Java and flash are proprietary. Hence the push for open source html5. Apple has never allowed flash on mobile units. Now android is working to kill Java. Oracle (Java) owner is one of the richest men in the world. I'm also glad to see both die off.

The old chat is my favourite. We went to it after the shared irc. I suggest people google the future of Java and browsers of today. Chrome is going strictly html5 which is a free source. Java, starlight and flash will all be passé. Hence Apple not supporting flash on iOS. Plus getting security credited is a pain.

Anyways the old chat is about $170/year. Addonchat was the makers.

The problem with the old chat is that it was a yearly license and became buggy when integrated with the forum. I do believe it is eye appealing to the user and friendly to use, hence why we opted for it when money was coming in. Now there is no revenue from TechPB.

I have no problem bringing it back if the users wish to pony up the cost. However the old chat was Java. Java is basically dying and being replaced by html5. Chrome browsers will soon no longer support Java.

Rubber will leave a yellow stain just like a rubber mat on linoleum.
