Gitchi is free Chrome extension which you can use to instantly turn pull request comments into chat. Basically, what it does is that it consolidates all the comments from currently opened pull request page into a chat like interface. It needs access to your GitHub account and then you can see the chat conversation popup. You can post your own comment there by simply sending message in to the chat window. The comments appear in chronological order and you are allowed to scroll to the end and switch between the different tabs which represent a file in the repo.
Sometimes there can be a lot of comments in the pull request section of a GitHub repo. And reading those comments sometimes become inconvenient as you have to scroll so much. And the Chrome extension I have mentioned here will help you do that. You just need to install it and give it accesses to your GitHub account and then it will handle the rest. You can open the chat interface when you want and minimize it as well. It will only work on GitHub pull requests page and will automatically show up there when you open one.
