There are many sites that helps you chat online, make chat rooms that help you chat with people other than using instant messengers etc. but the best one i liked and thought its worth sharing is Tinychat.

Tinychat delivers dead simple video conferences without the extraneous ad-ons and inconvenience, making video conferencing an accessible, uncomplicated experience. It works on Windows, Mac and Linux; with Firefox, IE, Safari, and Chrome; and there is a version available for iPhones.
Here are a few features of TinyChat –

These all above features can be done only when you have started the chat session. The tinychat website has free and pro membership, with latter costing $14.95.
For the pro users, there are additional features like controlling 5 rooms at a time, HQ video broadcasting, setting up of passwords for broadcasts, and also you can record and download the chat session.
