Installation is as easy as: (detailed instructions)
Having looked around for a decent chat system for my wordpress website that worked well, whilst looking clean and professional I was amazed how little options I had. Until I came across CometChat. I had previously been looking at some freeware options but decided I did not have the experience or knowledge to being coding and adaptation of these open source frameworks. So I took the plunge after much deliberating and purchased CometChat, it was probably the best website related investment I've made in a long, long time. Installation was nice and straight forward, I had a slight hiccup once it had been installed where I could not see any users online, but they fixed this in a matter of hours. I would definitely recommend CometChat to anyone thinking about it, you won't look back.
