Server admins take note: if you want a decent, minimalistic chat mod for your Minecraft server, then consider the WebChat mod.
WebChat is designed to make server chatting between players as easy and simplistic as possible. Instead of forcing the chat box to take up half the screen in Minecraft, WebChat moves all server chat to your internet browser. This is an excellent mod for those who have two monitors, since you can have chat conversations on one screen and an uninterrupted Minecraft experience on the other.
For those who don’t have dual monitors, you can separate your screen in half or alt-tab between windows. But really, this mod works best for those who have two monitors.
All WebChat functions can be managed using the in-game tabs and hotkeys. You can also create filters using this mod, which allows server admins to ban swearing or other heinous activities.
One of the best parts about the WebChat mod is its easy installation. It doesn’t require Forge and has complete Bukkit integration. If you’re a server admin who wants to make in-game chatting a little easier to manage, then the WebChat mod is something to consider.
