FB Chat Bully Whips Facebook's Chat Feature Into Shape

If you’re underwhelmed by the kludgy interface of Facebook’s native chat client, FB Chat Bully will help you tweak it, hide offline users, and more.

FB Chat Bully includes features like: auto-minimizing of the chat sidebar, hiding the chat column all together, hiding offline and/or idle users, and hiding avatar icons. Even if you don’t find the interface particularly objectionable the ability to hide offline users makes the FB chat function instantly more user friendly.

FB Chat Bully is available for both Firefox and Chrome. Hit up the link below to grab a free copy.

    how long will it take Facebook to realize that the only users who use the new facebook chat are those who don’t know yet that it can be returned with these addons and things?

    Too bad it doesn’t allow you to set your online status for specific users. I’ll just continue to remain offline for everybody…

    I wonder what do you suggest ? Google + ? Empty boring social networking service with my private information floating around for everyone to see ? Have you even looked at their privacy settings ? I can’t disable anything. I don’t care if FB knows a lot about me .. I’m not a spy. I just don’t care! I’m rather interested that some weirdo can’t see any of my friends and relatives and track me down through my friends. That’s the privacy I want. In g+ I can’t do that. Everything is linked together in a weird service with no purpose.

    @Michael Foresto:

    You can create friend lists, and add ppl to the lists, and then go offline to the specific list.
