How to get Back the Old Facebook Chat

Facebook has recently updated their Chat System with the new Video Calling Feature which have brought many changes in the UI of Facebook Chat. And According to Most of the reviews from users the Only word which is found common is that "The New Facebook Chat Sucks". So users are wondering how to get back that Old Facebook chat.

So is there anyway to get that old facebook chat back? The answer to this question is unfortunately "no".

But there's a way to chat the old way you were used to, and it is to use this technique:

Either Just go to this Link : http://www.facebook.com/presence/popout.php

This will open an Popout chat in an new tab giving you the old Interface back, so you can chat how you wanted it.

Now just Bookmark this link so you won't need to search for it again and again, here's how to:

  1. Open Mozilla Firefox and click "Ctrl+Shift+B" on your keyboard. The Mozilla Firefox Library window will appear on your screen.
  2. Click the expansion box to the left of "All Bookmarks" and then click "Bookmarks Toolbar" on the left side of the Mozilla Firefox Library window.
  3. Click "Organize" at the top of the Mozilla Firefox Library window and then click "New Bookmark."
  4. Type "Facebook Chat" in the blank field to the right of "Name."
  5. Type  http://www.facebook.com/presence/popout.php in the blank field to the right of "Location."
  6. Check the blank box to the left of "Load this bookmark in the sidebar."
  7. Click "Add." The Facebook Chat program will now be added to your Mozilla Firefox Bookmarks toolbar, by default located just below the Address bar in your Mozilla Firefox browser.
  8. Click the "Facebook Chat" icon on the Bookmarks toolbar on your Mozilla Firefox browser to run the Facebook Chat program in a sidebar. You will have to click "Facebook Chat" in each new Mozilla Firefox browsing session to place the program on the sidebar. To adjust the size of the Facebook Chat window, hold your cursor over the right edge of the program and hold your left-mouse button down. Drag the edge of the Facebook Chat window to the right until all of your chat window is viewable
That's it.
And one last thing, You definitely don't like the new Facebook chat (Right!) so what you can do is just leave an Suggestion back to Facebook Team with this link (http://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=ui_chat2), So this might help getting the old Facebook chat back to all of us!

There's a script that I've found (http://mediamonstrosity.com/2011/07/19/get-old-facebook-chat-back/) that will get it back to how it was before, but I've only heard of 1 or 2 people that actually like the new chat sidebar. I hope they change it back to how it was because now I can't really see who's online without a lot more steps.
