Java chat rooms

By 1995, the version of language was renamed as Java and was able to allow for dynamic graphics and applications to be performed on the Internet.

A host of websites launched Java in that year, and with its many uses, the first Java chat rooms were created.

By 1994, there were more than 400 MUDs on the Internet, and their topics spread from gaming to general conversation to MUDs formed by groups and associations to discuss common interests.

Net Meeting from Microsoft was the first voice chat program released.

Its first debut occurred in 1997, when it was released with Internet Explorer 4.

In August 1988, Jarkko Oikarinen created Internet Relay Chat (IRC) while working for the University of Oulu in Finland.

The original design was meant to support bulletin board functions that allowed people to discuss software, news and other issues online.

In 1991, computer engineers from Sun began work on a programming language for the Internet.

The team, led by James Gosling, produced its first finished language called "Oak" one year later.

If you press it while it is floating, the Java chat rooms applet will be placed back on the page, or closed if you are no longer on that page.

Each day, people from across the globe utilize chat rooms.

The program was called MUD, or Multi-User Dungeon, in homage of the dice-based gaming system known as Dungeons and Dragons.

Trubshaw's first MUD slowly spread outside his network of friends and acquaintances, inspiring others to create their own versions of the program.

The current topic for the room (if any), and the number of users in the room, are also shown. If the room list is not displayed it is because there are a large number on the server.
