Wanna see something cool?  Grab a friend and check out Jifty from trunk.  Then...

cd examples/Chat
./bin/jifty schema
./bin/jifty server

In Firefox go to http://yourmachine:8888/ on two machines.  Then chat.

Its a real-time chat client.  In a web browser.  In Javascript.  Using server push.

This is a demo app for Jifty's new server push feature that Audrey, clkao and Jesse knocked together in a few days.  This means pages can be updated by the server rather than the web client continually polling.

They're still ironing the details out.  The page appears to be continually loading (because an iframe connection remains open) and I don't think they've put in the necessary IE hacks.  But hey, its some cool shit.
