MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek:

MozSocial.openChatWindow Redirect 1

« DOM Reference

This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.


Opens a chat window, anchored to the bottom of the browser window. Each chat window is typically a one-on-one chat, but this functionality may vary depending on the provider.


MozSocial.openChatWindow(toUrl, callback);


The URL to which to open the chat connection.
An object to receive callback notifications on the connection. The callback receives as an input a reference to the chat window. See Implementing chat functionality for details.


Not part of any specification.
