I always chat with her on the net.

It implies that this action is really something which you often do. The use of Simple Present is correct. The use of the adverb always indicates that, right? It could mean that you chat every day or thrice a week ...

 

I have always chatted with her on the net.
This sentence means that once you began chatting with her and by the way the time refference is not important whatsoever and you still keep on chatting with her!

Got it?
