LANcet Chat Editor's Review

Chatting with your coworkers, friends or anyone who is connected to the same network as yours using conventional chat programs or messengers is never a good idea. This is mainly due to the fact that internet connectivity is required for these chatting programs. Therefore, under no condition you can chat with people on your network without paying for internet bills. Moreover, you need to create an account and there are many other troubles involved. Here comes LANcet Chat to the rescue. LANcet Chat is a free program designed to facilitate chatting over Local Area Network (LAN).

LANcet Chat is remarkably lightweight with its installer’s size of just 541Kbs. Installing it is like a walk in the park, you just have to hit next a couple of times and you are done. Just like its installer; it is light on system resources too. While running, it consumed less than 20Mbs of RAM, which is fairly small considering large capacity memory available today.

The best part about this program is that it is extremely novice friendly. During startup, it asks you to choose a screen name and that’s it. You can start chatting right away in community or you can private message a user of your choice. You can either key in the recipient’s name or select from the contacts list. You don’t have to add the contacts to the contacts list. Instead it syncs automatically with Windows’ network and sharing center and fetches the list of devices using the same network. This application supports emotions as well which is quite a surprise as many similar applications lack this facility. This application, however, does not support file transfers which is very disappointing. But, file transfers can be done using Windows’ built-in networking settings. There is an anti-boss feature included as well through which you can erase all chat history by hotkey combination or mouse click.

Positive Points:
  -  Extremely easy to use, anyone can use it with the same ease.
  -  Light on system resources.
  -  Contacts syncing with windows.
  -  Anti-boss feature.

Negative Points:
  -  No support for file transfers.

LANcet Chat is a free program made to make chatting easier while not connected to internet. It does its job to perfection. It is extremely easy to use that even a five year old would be able to chat using it. However, there are a few important features missing making it just a simple chat tool. It is definitely a good program for chatting, be it with friends, business or work.

LANcet Chat Publisher's Description

LANcet Chat is free software for real-time message exchange over local network (LAN). With it you don\'t need to install chat server. All participants can connect any time and they will see each other automatically. Just run chat on every computer and start talking immediately.

Chat can freely maintain 10-20 users at the same time and even more. The only limitation - you have to be inside single subnet, without software/hardware routers between users who want to participate.

Allows sending private messages. You can hold as much independent conversations as you want at the same time.

LANcet Chat can start automatically with Windows and stay in system tray (near the clock) waiting for messages whole day without disturbing you.

Popup windows and sounds will inform you when new message incoming or when new user appearing in your contact list.

You can switch off some boring interlocutors by "ignoring" their contacts.

Use emoticons to express yourself more than just by words.

Simple "Antiboss" system: press Esc and your chat will hide into system tray or will erase all the latest messages you got. Extremely useful when your angry boss is walking behind you and watching what are you doing on the job.
