Replaces :3 string with an appropriate emoticon
With recent changes introduced to Facebook chat we've been given a wider variety of emotions we are able to express visually. However there's one we lost, and it was the one with a special place in our heart.
It doesn't really matter if you have been using it to voice the sensation of enjoyment, that you are feeling cute or that your upper lip is similar to the one of a cat. The emoticon is currently missing its graphical form.
The "Return of the curly lips" add-on aims to fix this. It gives back the emoticon we've lost. It does so in the classic visual form we all enjoyed but in digitally remastered retina ready version. And not only on Facebook but wherever the emoticon appears in text.
Since "Return of the curly lips" is installed and runs in your browser, it doesn't change your messages or the way the curly/wiggle lips emoticon displays to the friends you send it to. However, you get the chance to enjoy its high quality form wherever you run into it. You can also go back to your old conversations and reminisce by reading them the way they were meant to be read.
In compliance with the graceful degradation principle, recipients of your messages who didn't install Return of the curly lips yet, will see the well known textual form of the emoticon.
If you, however, want them to read your messages exactly as you meant them, you can always let them know about this add-on or install it for them. That way we will build a new, emotionally enriched, level of communication.
