    First of all Hello to the Droid Forums! I've been constantly lurking around up til now and have to say I appreciate all the help I've found by looking about. You guys are great helpers.

    Well I'm not saying this is a completely new find but I've been waiting for Flash to unlock the full features of Facebook for too long as I'm sure that most of you have as well. So here's a simple way of using the Facebook Chat on your :motdroidhoriz: a bright feature that the :greendroid: Facebook app itself lacks.


    The requirement is XScope Browser. This is an outstanding browser app that beats Dolphin out of the water! I suggest you try it.

    NOTE: You must only use XScope Browser as it will not work in Dolphin or the regular Browsers.

    In XScope, navigate to Facebook.com. You should be at the Touch site (by default)

    1) Scroll to the bottom and select the Full link.
    You are now in the desktop version of Facebook.

    2) Scroll around and find your chat bar. Due to the absence of flash this can be a bit buggy and a little tricky to find.

    3) Once you have found the chat, 'click' on it to open up the list just as you would on your computer.

    4) Your going to hit the Options tab.

    5) Click Pop Out Chat.

    6) Now save this page to your favorites so you can easily access FB Chat anytime!

    See how easy that was? I hope this works for all of you fellow :blackdroid: ers!

    Thanks for the heads up, it's good to know. Personally I'd prefer using Meebo or Nimbuzz or one of the other XMPP compatible chat programs to chat on Facebook but that could still come in handy.

    I've had good results using Nimbuzz for this. Going into the browser just seems like a big hassle.


    On another note, what's with all the people cross-posting here lately? Cross-posting is bad, mmkay.

    It does work in the dolphin browser also!! I posted this about 2 weeks ago. Set dolphin browser options to desktop and ALL the websites will be in "desktop" mode instead of "mobile" mode. Chat works also.

    Well, you didn't post exactly the same thing and it was in a different area which is why this thread will not be closed. Keep in mind however cross posting is not permitted in the forums. If you have additional information you want to add later come back to this thread.;)

    Hookbill,

    I wasn't cross-posting. Just got irritated that he is trying to "slam" dolphin browser by saying: The requirement is XScope Browser. This is an outstanding browser app that beats Dolphin out of the water! I suggest you try it.

    NOTE: You must only use XScope Browser as it will not work in Dolphin or the regular Browsers.

    Just letting everyone know that is NOT true!! Dolphin browser does this also, I use it all the time!!

    Hey thanks for the info I actually didn't know but just checked and found out you could set it to Desktop in User Agent. I don't use it anymore because it's way slow compared to Xscope.

    The cross posting is my fault. I thought I posted the thread in the wrong discussion.
