A quick note to say ive added a couple of features:

Multiple chat rooms based on origin  e.g. http://fbx.webid.im/

Also end to end encryption

Set your localStorage.setItem('key', 'secret')

and it will aes encode messages so that not even the server can see what
you type

still a little buggy but it does work and it's nice to know that with a
freedombox and a day spare to code, you can quick knock together useful
apps! :)
