We have a lot of choices for how to connect to CS Chat. All of them connect to the same chat system, similar to how you can use Firefox, or Chrome, or Safari, or Internet Explorer to connect to the WWW.

Look through the menus across the top here. You'll find ways to connect using the browser, and we'll be adding other types as soon as we can document them (with screenshots). And the menu above does pull down. Choices are there for your pleasure.

If you're unsure of which choice to make, we recommend using JWChat. It's simple, works in the browser, and gets around firewall issues. Check out the docs on how to use it, too.

If you're someone who knows how to use Jabber, and just needs settings, check out the instructions for the generic Jabber/XMPP settings.
