Vincenzo, oukside.com

What a great product, I was initially worried about purchasing as there is so much out there for chat, but nothing seemed to offer the same functions as CometChat and it seemed slightly to good to be true for the starter edition. I found out there wasn't a magento module to help install, but CometChat came to the rescue and sorted it for me, a few days later all up and running, cant say enough good things really , thank you guys :)
