Facebook has recently launched the new video chat system in collaboration with Skype. With this new chat system Facebook has brought a whole new sidebar to the table. Facebook has earlier rolled out the new image viewer which upset the users and now people aren’t satisfied with this new chat bar also. There are couple of ways of getting the old chat system and we would be covering both.
First one is pretty simple, when you are logged into Facebook, just open the following page-
and you would see the old Facebook chat showing all your online friends.
Get old Facebook chat in Firefox
First of all you would like to install Greasemonkey addon in Firefox. You can install Grease Monkey addon from here- https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/greasemonkey/
After installing Grease Monkey addon go to the following page- http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/107159 and click on Install button at the top right corner. After installing just refresh your facebook page and you would see the old sidebar.
Get old Facebook chat in Google Chrome
In Google chrome you can directly install the script from this page- http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/107159 . After installing the script just refresh the Facebook page in Google chrome and you would see the old Facebook chat.
