Few weeks back we told you about the introduction of some new features on Facebook, some of which people like and some everyone disliked. The video chat feature was greatly liked by everyone who used it, but even now many people haven’t had the chance to try it out. Believe me, it has bugs and eats a lot of CPU since it’s powered by Skype. But, we also know that Facebook will make it better as time passes by.
Another new thing that Facebook introduced was the new chat bar, which apparently, wasn’t liked by almost all the users. I personally do not like it, but since I don’t use chat much, it doesn’t bother me much. To others however, it’s like they’re almost beginning to hate Facebook.
So, if you’re looking for ways to get your old Facebook chat back, then follow the little tutorial below to get that smile back on your face.
How-to get back the Old Facebook Chat
To make this work, you’ll need to have Greasemonkey installed on your browser. Currently this works only on Chrome and Firefox, and since Chrome supports greasemonkey scripts you won’t have to install anything.
Download Greasemonkey for Mozilla Firefox over here. Install it. This is only for Firefox, if you’re on Chrome then start with the second step.
Now you need to download a userscript known as Facebook Sidebar Chat Reversion on both Chrome and Firefox. Get it over here.
That’s it. Head over to your Facebook profile and behold!! The old Facebook chat is back, just the way you always wanted it to be.Checkout the screenshot below.
Do you like the new Chat sidebar or do you prefer to use the old?
