Facebook chat sidebar now covers full length of the screen and spans vertically to take up all the height. This surely makes it easier to have a glance at more number of friends as compared to the earlier one. But many of you may not be very fond of this longer sidebar(including me) and would want to revert back to the older Facebook chat sidebar. Wouldn’t you wan’t to have the older sidebar for Facebook chat? If yes, the Facebook Sidebar Chat reversion script for Greasemonkey can be of great help.

The newer version of Facebook chat sidebar extends from the bottom to the top. There isn’t even an option to minimize this sidebar. Facebook has also made it a bit difficult to appear online or offline to certain chat groups. Previously, you could do it simply by clicking the green icon next to a group and you would instantly appear offline to the friends on the group. But now, you will have to click on the Limit availability button and choose the groups that you want appear offline to. If you aren’t very fond of these latest changes in the Facebook chat sidebar, Facebook Chat Sidebar reversion script comes in very handy. Just go ahead and install the script on Greasemonkey. Now open Facebook on a new tab. You will instantly see the changes in your chat window.

You can also choose to show online friends only or group friends by online and idle.
