If your browser is not Java enabled you will not see the chat room but get a message ' 2. When you visit the web page with the chat room and your browser supports Java you will see the chat window. To silence annoying chatters in your room , check the 'ignore user' check box and highlight the user and then any message sent by the user will not be displayed on your screen. If you want to surf to something else, highlight the URL in the chat window and hit Surf. You need to use a web browser that is Java enabled in order to use Para Chat. By default, the Surf button takes you to the last URL in the chat text, i.e the last URL someone typed in as part of their message or was in the chat window.
Type any message in the text box at the bottom and hit return and it is sent to all users by default. Please note Surf takes you to the URL on a separate window of your browser so you can keep chatting on the original browser window.
