Yeah, a mix of php and javascript (ajax) should suffice. Another approach would be to use flash.

I wasn't aware such applications where still in existence. ;)

well if we are talking about chat room handled by browser go with a JavaScript one so many premade ones for you out there but for your own chat room not browser powered go with Vbasic 2008 it has all the nifty tools to make one with you can just drag and drop and your done if you want to lol but can can do alot to your room also.

 

Oh and @ thorpe  ppl use them all the time they just arent public any more :P we also like to use  VOip these days (ventrilo is my fav to talk to my friends who needs myspace or facebook lol)

Visual Basic?  Call me biased, but I've never been much a fan of Visual Basic.  If I were going to write the server side of a chat room in something besides PHP (and, if it were going to be largely used, I would not write it in PHP mosy likely), I would write it in C++ or Java.
