Use Messenger (Unofficial) from within your browser
NOTE: WE ARE NOT FACEBOOK AND WE ARE NOT RELATED TO THEM: WE ARE INDIE DEVELOPERS PROVIDING AN EXTENSION TO CHROME USERS.
Use Messenger (Unofficial) from within your browser.
It allows you to open your FB mailbox to send and receive messages.
Not only for mobile phones. Now you can use Messenger from Google Chrome!
It's an amazing way to get in touch with your contacts without wasting time.
Messenger is easy to use and it's the best solution for any Facebook user.
We know that a solution like an embedded popup may be a better solution, but due to some new technical details, there are some problems with Facebook website.
For more information, visit the following websites.

- after writing a message, you can hit TAB+ENTER to send it automatically
- although screenshot language is Italian, the app is localized with your local language (English, Spanish, etc...), since it's related to your account
IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR WHO IS UPDATING:
Due to new Google policies - http://blog.chromium.org/2013/12/keeping-chrome-extensions-simple.html - the extension is now only focused on FB Messages.
A complementary extension for Facebook mobile surfing is Facebook Mobile View:
IMPORTANT NOTICE RELATIVE TO EXTENSION NAME CHANGE:
Due to Google Chrome Web Store policies, we have been forced to change the name of the application to Messenger (Unofficial). The "unofficial" term highlights the fact we are not related to FB, since we are indie developers.
For any suggestion, please write us an email through the options page of the extension.

A notification count is shown if you've got new Facebook messages, to inform you someone wrote you!!

Upgrading the Chrome extension, some additional permissions are required: in particular, permission to access http://*.facebook.com and https://*.facebook.com pages.
This is needed to retrieve the amount of unread messages.
No additional data are retrieved nor stored by the application.
You own your information!!! That's a base principle for us!!
