is there any free applications available ?

I'm looking for the same thing
First I considered LivePerson Chat but at about $1500/month plus startup costs it's out of my employer's budget (we spend less on Weblogic front-line support!). Mind you, it's got a great feature set, but it's overkill for our purposes.
My boss suggested:
for no other reason than they appeared first in his search.
Google has chatback, which hooks your website up with Google Talk IM, but I don't know if it can be licensed to a commercial site (if that's your concern).
I'd be interested to hear what you find.
