Looks like a nice collaboration tool, but I can’t login. I end up on an error page in French even though my Gmail account is set to use English, so God knows what’s happening. Not that I collaborate much anyway.
And you may or may not care about John Gruber’s take:
But HuddleChat is just a feature-for-feature clone of 37signals’s Campfire. The layout is the same, the tabs at the top of the screen are the same, the right-side sidebar listing participants and file uploads is the same. It even copies Campfire’s trick of formatting a message as “code” if it contains literal newline characters.
Borrowing ideas is fair game, but copying an entire app is wrong. And it’s creepy, in a Microsoft-of-the-’90s way, when it’s a $150 billion company cloning an app from a 10-person company.
