Hab.la is a lightweight method to chat with visitors to your website using your existing instant messaging client. Visitors to your website appear as buddies on your Buddy list, their messages to you appear as IMs. Their messages show up in your favorite instant messaging application. Hab.la works with Meebo, Pidgin, Adium, iChat, or any other XMPP/Jabber client.

When a visitor comes to your web page, the Hab.la chat box is minimized in the lower right corner of the browser. If you're signed in to your IM client, the box will read "click to chat." The messages arrive in your IM client. Your first chatter will be named webuser1. You can reply in the same way you'd reply to any IM. The chat box stays active even if the visitor goes to another page on your site. Your IM client's user status feature will show you what page your visitor is viewing. With most IM clients, this shows up right in your buddy list.
