Additional Info
The Avatar Chat is written in HTML DOM, Ajax, PHP & MySQL. To reduce server load and increase performance, the Avatar Chat has been coded more for client side (your PC or MAC) rather than server side (your web server). Therefore, any old or low spec PC's/Mac's may not perform as well as todays technology will.

The Avatar Chat software has also been written to support CSS 3. All modern browsers that support CSS 3 (Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome, etc) will see 'round edge' type screens. Older versions of the IE browser will see 'square edge' type screens instead.
