Best way to view twitch/jtv chat while streaming?

by ViscerusTV » Sat Feb 04, 2012 1:41 pm

I know most people have dual monitor set ups, but for those who don't, what is the most practical way of monitoring stream chat without hindering game play? All suggestions welcome. : )

PS. Alt+Tabbing isn't an option, what I mean is something like a transparent, borderless window that doesn't interfere with mouse movements in the game etc. (takes up minimal space and can't be clicked on without alt tabbing)

Wait, I believe this is worth a look:

It's for IRC, but if your stream provider uses that for the back end chat, I think that's what you're looking for.

Maybe, would I as the broadcaster also be able to see this overlay? Or would it be purely for viewers
