    Ryan,

    iPad has a mobile version of the Safari browser which can handle *most* HTML 5/JavaScript the web throws at it. If the chat uses something like Flash or Java, neither of those are supported.

    Depending on how they do the chat, she could always see if there's an iTunes app that supports it.

    Depends on the site/chat setup -- if you give us a link we can check.

    I've been searching for this same solution. Atomic browser is hit and miss as far as playing "everything". I'm gonna try skyfire next.
