If you're chatting with someone you like and have to go but hope to continue the conversation at another time, you can become friends on the site.

There's no logging in or registration required for chats like this, and a chat is a single click away once you're on the main page. The idea behind this site is to be able to remain anonymous and have a judgment-free conversation with a stranger.

The site notes that because there is no software to download, it's perfect for those who are on older computers that may not run as quickly. However, if you want to set up a profile, you can give yourself a name other than "Stranger," see others' screen names and even request a photo of someone you meet.

The challenge could be running across the right person at the right time since the chat room option tends to be quieter than one might expect on a site with so many users.

This site shouldn't be confused with the matchmaking site, Ok Cupid.

These chat rooms have a 1990s feel to them, in that they're fairly basic and easy to get into and offer a refreshingly simple design.

Though some of the chat rooms are labeled teen-friendly, these rooms seem to be best for ages 18 and up because some users may post erotic comments, and the rooms are only loosely moderated.

Reviews at Easy Counter have comments about the wonderful graphics and how it can be a nice place to chat.

Norton gave it an "OK" in its safety rating regarding viruses, phishing and spyware.

Some sites allow you to chat for free with the option to upgrade for access to other features while others are completely free.

The more involved the registration process the slower the chat rooms seem to be, though speed could vary by location, day of the week and time of day.

This site also has that retro 90s feel to it and offers dating, adult, lesbian, gay, college and other types of chat rooms.
