Im currently using Kayako Esupport suite, it would be nice if there could be an implementation for that.
However ofcourse its commercial. Live support uses an windows application to chat with customers, a webbased live support will be lateron added.
I think a webbased messasing service is unhandy if it cannot be linked to an windows or java based application also.
