Chatbox Options for WordPress?

WordPress.com bloggers used to have 4 chatbox options, but 3 had been eliminated since then, leaving users with Meebo widget.  And now, from 04/06/2012 onwards, the giant company Google has acquired Meebo, leading to the termination of its service.

This might not come as breaking news to many, but it is surprising that Meebo is still available in the WordPress.com widgets selection page and there has been no announcement from WordPress.com that this product was discontinued.

Hmm…  WordPress has been brilliant, but certainly in this 21st century, you ought to provide the platform of a basic chatbox (third party or not) to users, even if they don’t pay a premium fee.
