Tell your friends about this free Chrome extension:
Facebook has over 800 million active users and is one of the biggest and the most popular social networking site on the planet. There are scores of other social networking websites released each year in hopes of cashing in on the social networking craze created by Facebook. To ensure that the competition stays behind them, Facebook has had to constantly reinvent itself through constant updates. While most of their changes are welcomed with open arms, some changes, like the new Facebook chat sidebar.
The new Facebook chat bar has garnered its fair share of flak, but Facebook traditionalists can rejoice as the FB Chat Sidebar Disabler extension for Google Chrome brings back the tried and tested chat bar. To install it, all you have to do is go to the Chrome Webstore and search for it. Then simply click on the ‘Add to Chrome’ button to install it. After installation is complete, you must either refresh all the Facebook tabs and windows or you must restart Google Chrome. Then open your Facebook account as usual, and you will notice that you can now toggle the old style of the chat with the new style via the options menu in the buddy list.
This is perfect for those users of Facebook who prefer the older, simpler method of chatting with their friends because they just learnt how to use the old Facebook chat and don’t want to go through the process of learning the new Facebook chat. However, if you are confident enough to learn the how the new Facebook chat works and you wish to disable it, simply click on the ‘wrench’ icon and go to ‘tools’ and then ‘extensions’ and then you can choose to disable the extension.
