This is the first post on the tinychat blog, so lets make it a good one and start off with what we are going to be adding to tinychat:
Ok, here goes:
Major speed improvements, and the death of occasionaly “Freezes”
ability to turn on / off joins and parts
add myspace and facebook as a login option – Option to not notify friends
Service icon by their username if they login via twitter/fb/etc.. + avatar
Make the dynamic, based on the last message received -Will say “X new messages” if tab doesn’t have focus.

Password protected chatrooms
301 www to non www
and introducing…. tinychat “extended”
Tinychat extended is designed for users who would rather opt for a non-disposable chat. It will let you register for a room name ( for instance #john ) and then you will “own” that channel. You can kick and IP ban users, add moderators, password protect it, add encryption, review all chat logs and more.
These features are primarily designed for people who want to put tinychat on their own websites via the up and coming inline flash widget. You can get the same sexy interface the main site ads, but skinnable and on your own site.
