Recently, Facebook rolled out a new video calling feature in collaboration with Skype. The new feature allowed for one-to-one video chatting with your friends. However, they also rolled out a new chat sidebar which has been annoying people to no end.
Facebook has been known to annoy users with newer design changes, and it is no surprise that people are upset with such an attitude. Last time Facebook annoyed users with a new rollout for the image viewer, however, you can easily disable the Facebook Theater mode too.
Earlier last month, Google also annoyed users by changing their homepage design and adding a black bar at the top. You can easily remove the black bar in Google and similarly also revert back to the old Facebook chat.
In order to get rid of the new Facebook sidebar chat that has been included, you will need to install a Greasemonkey script. Just head over to this link and click on the install button. This will install the script and revert Facebook chat to the older version.
The script should work out of the box in Google Chrome and Firefox with the Greasemonkey add-on installed. If you are using a browser like Opera, Internet Explorer or Safari you might want to read our earlier guide about a workaround to run Greasemonkey scripts in Opera, Internet Explorer or Safari.
