It would be nice to be able to decouple the chat from browser and even if the browser is closed, being able to keep chatting and seeing who is online.

Liferay's chat is not a full-blown chat system...

You could probably implement such a thing by leveraging a chat server (i.e. OpenFire) along with a java client (i.e. SMACK).

The beauty of this implementation is that you can use any XMPP-capable client (outside of browser) or your java portlet. Toughest part would be figuring out how to not use java portlet chat if user has logged in using some desktop client, but that shouldn't be all that hard...

I'm guessing this is like a weekend project...
