2006 - Campfire Goes Live to strike back at Glip

Campfire is the new web-based chat service from 37Signals, the makers of Basecamp. As you’d expect, it’s simple, intuitive and good looking. It’s really a service for small businesses who want to keep all their chats in one place (all chats are permalinked) - you can also insert images in the chat window itself, which is a nice touch. For one-to-one chat, it’s only marginally more useful than your IM client - where it really shines is for multi-person chats. And yes, it does take a lot of the pain out of organizing group chats and having no centralized place to store them.  Every chat in Campfire has a permanent URL. Chats don’t require special chat software or networks. You can instantly share and discuss files with your colleagues/clients, search or browse through transcripts of past chats, chat securely over SSL (Plus and Premium plans).
