An open-source chat with the features you expect and many other ones.
Everyone can create new public or private rooms, and the top bar lets you keep track of activity in other rooms.
A user's identity can be confirmed via external sites (like StackOverflow and GitHub), so you can be sure who's who.
You can search for messages in any room's Search tab. Messages and their context are never deleted so you can always link to them.
Start a video or audio chat with any connected user, even from a mobile device. No plugin necessary.
Get a user's attention by replying to their message, or pinging them directly with
@username. You can enable Desktop Notifications to make sure you won't miss a reply.
You can up-vote noteworthy messages. You can star important messages, and room owners can pin them for all to see.
A special flavour of Markdown enables richly formatted messages.
Support for bold, italic, links, lists, tables, images, code, and more.
Plus some special sauce of our own: For example, to paste an image, just hit Ctrl-V.
Made a typo? No problem, hit the ↑ (up arrow) key to edit your last message.
Following a conversation in a busy room could be tricky but Miaou visualises a conversation's flow so you can stay on top of things.
Everyone loves to choose a skin.
Miaou is highly extensible, with many plugins already written.
From embedding Wikipedia pages, StackOverflow questions and YouTube videos to plotting graphs and customising messages.
You can even challenge people to a game of Tribo!
