It feels like I've seen lots of these chat clients on ShowHNs. Isn't there even a YC-backed one? TinyChat or something?

This one is nicely done though - here are my immediate thoughts on tweaks (mostly ideas from other in the chat rooms, but I've got a few mins so thought I'd summarize them here.)

* Move it to aggregate chatrooms by domain name

* Add a 'Always chat on this site' checkbox that pops it open whenever I visit HN.

* Remove the lobby

* Change "5 online" to say "5 people" or similar

* It needs history desperately. Just the last 10 comments would do as a start.

Alex - thanks again for joining the chat, bunch of super awesome feedback, will look into this.

Biggest = move to domain/subdomain level chat right now, and the history!
