My answer to Is it possible to embed Skype into a webpage to use as live chat support for free? on Quora

Olark offer a very neat JavaScript widget that does exactly this (it’s text-based messaging, not video or voice): http://www.olark.com/—you can try their demo at the bottom of their page.

It’s free for up to 20 conversations a month, and very reasonably priced for the other plans.
