The world may be moving towards mobile apps, but desktop applications still are the real deal. Particularly those that provide both style and substance, like Chit Chat for Facebook here.
Facebook recently dropped support of their desktop application, Facebook Messenger — to the dismay of millions, it must be said, who still used the program, even though it pretty much became stagnant in terms of updates and new features.
Enter Chit Chat for Facebook.
This feature rich instant messaging program lets you access Facebook chat from your desktop, without the hassle of using a web browser. Like the classic software of old, it provides audio notifications every time chat messages are received, or your Facebook friends log in or out.
And options like tabbed messaging, support for proxy servers, and automatic archiving of Facebook chat message only sweeten the deal, making it a well-rounded package.
The user interface of this free program could be a bit more modern, but it works fine and is a nice throwback to the Windows Messenger era. Other than that, this is a fast and breezy solution to converse with Facebook contacts straight from the desktop.
