ARSC Really Simple Chat is a Web chat system that uses PHP and MySQL. It works with every browser in existence, even text-based ones, and it uses the server push technique or, if possible, its own socket server. It is very simple to install and use ARSC. It includes some important features, such as operators, kick-ing, whispering, and more. Multiple rooms and different languages are available. To run ARSC on your site, you need a Web server that understands PHP, and can connect to a MySQL database.

Release Notes: A bug that broke the installation routine was fixed.
Release Notes: A dedicated ping frame was added, moving the ping functionality away from the userlist. A 'flag as idle' functionality, which flags users that would have been kicked in former versions as idle, was added, allowing for other users to log in as the idle user if they have the same IP or, if it is a registered user, know the user's password. The user is de-flagged if he sends in a ping again. The socket server was removed; it will be reintroduced once it is stable.
Release Notes: The auto-logout functionality was dropped from the browser_push version in order to improve stability. A bug that prevented httpd processes from correctly terminating was fixed. The database tables were switched from microtime (bigint) values to primary key for message index.
Release Notes: A script was added to avoid the case where the session ID of a user is sent within the referer when clicking on an external URL posted into the chatroom. This is done in order to avoid session theft. Rooms may now contain special characters, and a faster and more compatible color picker was added. A Bosnian language file is now included, and the browser_push version uses less bandwith. Registered users can now re-login quickly, even if their former session did not time out correctly.
