You may have misread that part. The page uses iframes to separate user input and general chat messages. It says that ChatWindow.aspx is not used for user input; it doesn't say the application can't accept user input or display and accept input at the same time.

I just opened the application in two different browsers, went to /ChatServer/ContentFiles/, clicked a chat room, chose a name and then I was able to chat, with instant results, between the two windows. Whatever I entered in FireFox, would show up a second later in IE in vice versa. So, it works as you'd expect by design, but maybe something went wrong in your setup...
