How does it work?

The ChaNT client side functioning on JavaScript XMLHttpRequest object to asynchronously communicate with the server-side. Server response parsed and used to update the chat window content. By generating the HTML locally within the browser, and only bringing down JavaScript calls and the actual data, AJAX web pages can appear to load relatively quickly since the payload coming down is much smaller in size.
