RumbleTalk is a HTML5, based chat that offers a great interface with many features, including 1:1 webcam chat with anyone in the room. RumbleTalk is an excellent mobile option. The only two issues we have is that its subscription model is somewhat pricey and the group chat room was clearly not a priority for the developer.

ChatBlazer checks many boxes. It looks great, is mobile ready and offers webcam capability for desktop users. The only big criticism is that you're starting at $120/month for a webcam enabled chat. The price point has kept it out of the hands of many webmasters. Even though this is a solid chat, few people use it because it is so costly. If you have a popular and profitable site, this site is worth a look but might be a bit much for a new site or one with limited funds...

Flyzoo offers both group chat rooms and "live support" chat. There you can display your room by having it fly out from the side or pop up from the bottom. The chat is mobile friendly but there is no cam support and this feels much more like live support chat than software intended to be used as a group chat.

FlashComs has a great user interface and allows webcams to be streamed to the entire room or to individuals. The chat works just about perfectly on desktop and there are many features that make this an attractive platform. However the web has moved away from Flash® and without developing a fully functional HTML5 version of its software, we would not advise you to buy this product. We are pretty confident it will be in the Chat Graveyard before long.
[ Key Points: Uses Flash | Not Recommended | Cost: $$ ]
