An honest review of the eStream Chat script.

eStream is a free PHP and AJAX chat script with a clean design that works reasonably well. We did notice that the features page says chatters can use webcams but we found no such option in the actual chat demo.
eStreamChat works just fine on mobile but there are a couple issues which make its use on mobile a bit annoying. The screen does not zoom properly and appears tiny on mobile and you must push the send button with your finger rather than hitting enter.
What we found most puzzling is that everything about eStreamChat popped up over night and was never again touched. They uploaded the source code to their GitHub page, set up Facebook, Twitter, G+ and LinkedIn all in 2012, and were never again used.
Despite not being heard from since 2012 eStream Chat seems is a great option for anyone looking to add a free basic chat to their website. There are minor issues with the mobile chat that hamper its use and are likely to never be fixed.
