Q: Do My Members Need to Run Java to Chat?

GuildPortal uses a custom-build chat application based on AJAX and web protocols, so they will not need to run any kind of Java applet or ActiveX application in order to use it.  In fact, since it runs over standard web ports, there will be no trouble with firewalls, either.
