Live Chat 3 - Version 5.0

Live Chat 3 - Version 5.0 is here!

10 Years Ago

We have started with the core code of Live Chat 3, 10 Years ago we still cannot believe a decade has gone.

Luckely to you we are very well known in the Live Support Industry and with this update we have just added another big lead to our competitors.

Technology Back in 2011

When we started back in 2011 the browser compatibilty was kind of a nightmare, we still managed to make it work in a way you did not need a special server or browser to use our software.

All this code has still been used till today. Of course we modified it, made it work with PHP 7 and later with PHP 8 but it was still kind of old and slow code.

Technology Today

We are almost in 2022 and luckely Internet Explorer is a past for good and Edge is based on Chrome, that makes developing so much easier and we can use technology that allows use creating code that is fast, reliable and secure. But not just browsers have been changed also web servers. With PHP 7 and 8 we have a strong, fast and secure programming language it almost can't get any better.

Now it is time to release this brand new technology to you!

Live Chat 3 - Version 5.0

Available right now for you and we are proud that we have created something special again!
