is a userscript for the dAmn chatrooms
. This userscript gives the official chat client the ability to use WebSockets
instead of Flash, Java, and other alternatives.Why this is a good idea?
Using WebSockets means that no additional browser extensions, aside from this userscript, have to be loaded into the chatrooms in order to connect. This makes connecting faster, and often, more reliable. Using WebSockets for the chatrooms is also faster than using Flash or Java! Install this userscript and you should get a noticeable speed boost when using dAmn.Installing in FireFox
Install Greasemonkey Click to install dAmn.wsInstalling in Chrome
Open the extension manager in Chrome (chrome://extensions)
Drag and drop dAmn.ws onto the pageCredits
Thanks to the following people for helping make this userscript a reality:
created and runs the proxy server that is used by the userscript to connect to dAmn.
fixed the userscript to make it work in FireFox, and provided code to make it fit in with the rest of dAmn properly.
fixed some encoding issues.Known Bugs
In FireFox, pressing the "escape" button causes the WebSocket connection to be closed. This is a bug in FireFox, I do not know when it will be fixed.
