How to Fix Facebook‘s New Broken Chat System (YES!) By Jesus Diaz, Jul 22, 2011 9:31 AM
Gizmodo reader Tal Ater agreed that Facebook’s new chat system is a clusterzuck of confusion, so he created a little program to fix it! It will take off the list anyone who’s offline. Here’s how to do it: • Go to his download page. • If you use Windows, download the program on top. After running it, your Facebook chat will forever only show the people who are online (green icon) or recently online (with the away icon). • If you use Mac or Linux, add the bookmarklet “Fix Chat” to your browser bookmarks bar. You will need to click on the bookmarket in every new Facebook window (I keep mine open most of the time, so this is ok). That’s it. It works great but, as always, run this software at your own risk. Tal says that he’s working on a version that would fix the Facebook chat permanently on Mac and Linux machines. And again, remember that there are still plenty of reasons for quitting Facebook and going to Google+.
