A few weeks ago, I saw that Massively switch their comment system over to something called Livefyre.  It's a commenting system similar to Disqus, but with a few interesting features.  I figured I'd give it a shot on this site for a few days and see how it goes.  There are two main aspects of Livefyre which I am interested in:

Real-Time Commenting.  Basically, new comments will appear without reloading the page.  That sort of makes it like a chat room, instead of just a message board.

SocialSync.  Livefyre has put some effort into integrating related Twitter and Facebook comments so that they will also appear as a comment.  It sounds neat, we'll see how it works.

Another positive about Livefyre is that they support more login methods ( Google, Twitter, Facebook etc).  You can still post as a Guest, just say 'No Thanks' when they ask you to create an account.

If you can, please try it out, I'd like to know what you think.  If you cannot comment for some reason, feel free to let me know on twitter or send me an e-mail.  Thanks!
