You can also add video and audio chat into the mix in almost any of the rooms. Chat Avenue is an old school chat option, complete with moderators who make sure everyone stays safe.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.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.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.
