I've got 2 more very cool updates for you about the ChatButton chat box: HTTP Secure Encryption and the addition on an "Online Users" list.
All Chat Channels are now 100% using HTTPS Secure Encryption: Nobody likes the idea of having their messages or data compromised, whether it's by the NSA or just your friends. So today I am happy to announce that ALL ChatButton chat boxes are now using 100% HTTPS secure encryption. This means that all messages that are sent and received are encrypted and cannot be seen by people unless you share access to URLs where you've installed your chatbox. This is not offered for free by most other chat boxes!
If you are using ChatBox on your own HTTPS pages then you will need to make sure you using the secure version of the ChatButton code. If you aren't using the secure version of the code then you may receive security notices on your page (although your chat box will still be using HTTPS and be secured). Check your ChatButton code and see if it includes "http://s.chatbutton.com/c.js". If it does then you'll need to update that to be "https://www.chatbutton.com/c.js", or simply visit ChatButton to generate new code.
Now See Who's Online: This was one of the most requests features... Now you can see who is online in your ChatButton. At the top of the chat box you will see the number of users online (including you):
Clicking on this will display a list of users that are online. This list is automatically updated every few seconds:
I plan to add more features in the coming weeks and months, but I want them to be a surprise, so I'm not going to tell you which exact features I have planned. People love ChatButton for its simplicity, so I am going to keep it simple, but functional.
ChatButton sees over 100,000 pageviews every day from visitors in almost every country of the world. We serve over 300 HTTP requests every second. Thanks for using ChatButton - and I hope you tell your friends so we can grow even more!
