Jquery coupled with some form of a .net webservice that speaks JSON would work pretty well, I would think - would be really light overhead on bandwidth and no page refreshes -- make JQ do a sleep or round-robin cycle of some form. FB's chat protocol would be something to dissect and look at for ideas, maybe

You can use signalr for chat. Its been actively developed by Microsoft and is light weight. It is equivalent to NodeJS in linux.

SignalR uses websockets to keep connection open. This is much better than using ajax to query the server every few seconds for new data. If browser does not support web sockets (IE 6, etc), it would fall back to older protocol such as server sent events, forever frame, long polling, etc.

Tip: Facebook uses combination os server sent event, forever frame, etc. They do not use NodeJS though (as far as I know).

@johnk is on the right track.

You guys are just talking about Jabbr: https://github.com/JabbR/JabbR 

It's the best chat system for .NET period -- even has Android and iOS clients.

Looks great as well, but again, way too many moving pieces.
