Do you hate the new Facebook chat as much as the rest of us? Did you (like me) fall for the “try it now”, only to discover there was no going back? Well, there actually is a way to go back in time – sort of. Depending on your browser, you can install free, safe script that will bring back your old-type chat. I just installed a free plug-in for Chrome, and I am happy to announce that I can now display ONLY my online friends, or a handful of other options. I will continue to check out plug-ins for Safari and IE:
To revert to old facebook chat in Google Chrome: Install FB Chat Sidebar Disabler free from the Google Chrome Store. Click on Friends List and Options at the top of the chat window to make changes to your view.
To revert to old facebook chat in Mozilla Firefox: Install FB Chat Sidebar Disabler free from Firefox Add-Ons.
