I don't know if this is want you are looking for or not. But anyway I hope
this can be helpful to anyone who wants to build a "web chat".
Usually, that kind of client-server intercommunication with browsers is
done via java applet. You can hide it as a 1 pixel somewhere around the
corner of the screen. The applet does the communication with the server,
This is one of the best ways of making a "web chat", AFAIK.
