The Chat Extension adds a chat box to the Habitica website. It allows users to more easily chat in the Tavern, their party, and any guilds they have joined.

Chat spaces appear as boxes that overlay the current Habitica page. This allows you to view your tasks while monitoring up to five chat spaces.
