2012 is starting well, with a new plugin that enables all to return to the old Facebook chat with friends lists, the ability to be online or offline for only a few of these, and all the old functionality that was lost when the Facebook upgrade introduced the sidebar.
We were the first to give you a way to see the old chat and among the first to report that the extension that allowed users to go back to the old chat, removing the annoying sidebar. Unfortunately, these methods have not work for several months and we were forced to use the new chat. We had to get used to something that wasn’t comfortable and even still it is an app that the majority of users do not like. Until now.
It’s called REfacechat, and is developed by the Italians to whom we give a thumbs up for this project. It ‘a free extension available for the most common browsers: Firefox, Chrome, Safari and even Internet Explorer.
