The new chat, debuted by Facebook a few weeks ago, has received a lot of criticism as it doesn't seem to show all of your online friends. A developer by the name Tal Ater has released a fix.
i will not download that its probably a virus or fake
It it legitimate, I wouldn't post something that I hadn't checked for viruses. At least, my anti-virus didn't pick anything up, and the JS-only version works just fine if you don't like the look of the .exe :)
ok thanks mate
Isn't that exactly what they had going before? Why did they change it for such a completely useless and stupid system where you see people who aren't even online? Retarded!
I facepalm every time Facebook make changes. I'd really like to know what stuff they smoke every time they come up with these "ideas" and make these decisions. They have "complicated" their interface with every change they have made. They make it counter intuitive every time. Why would you need to go 3, 4, or 5 clicks deep to find your friend list? Is the most important thing in FB! Why would they combine messages and chat? They are a totally different thing (at least used in totally different ways and purposes), why would they not show online friends in the chat? Is really stupid this one! and their photo system: horrible. The site is slower every time, filled with bugs and tons of spam. Really, Facebook is dropping the ball big time. They only care about ads, it's filled with them, and don't care about the usability or easiness of the interface any more. I've only had Google+ for a very short period of time, but even though it is not ultra intuitive and fast to learn, once you get the hang of it, it looks way better than Facebook. It FB don't pull a rabbit out of their hats fast, they will be overcome by Google and fast. Very fast! (Which I hope)
Google+ is poised to rape FB. Facebook takes 1 step forward and 2 steps back, while Google+ is skipping ahead in glee. Google+ is said to be readying "social games" for itself. Many people I have chatted with on Fb are ready to jump off the Facebook wagon as soon as it happens.
They've made a lot of stupid decisions, like not allowing you to view people who's friend requests are currently pending or outstanding, making it so when you search names you never get your friends' names but rather people you've never heard of, its impossible finding your friends quickly because of this, the designers of facebook must have gotten drunk and high for them to make this many atrocious design decisions in such a short period of time.
Deleting my Facebook totally fixed the problem.
Yeah I just deleted mine too.
AVG picks it up as a virus when you try and run it.
Use a decent Anti-virus ;) It's a false positive.
lol, at the nerds saying g+ is looking to rape facebook, who cares
