CNET Editors' review
Facebook 4 Mac is an app that lets you access your Facebook account from outside a Web browser. A free download, Facebook 4 Mac installs quickly and with no issues.
Facebook 4 Mac launches with a log-in window in which you enter your Facebook account credentials. From there, you can use this app to access your friend list, browse mail and chat sessions, and perform many actions you would normally perform through a Web browser. Essentially providing the Facebook interface in an app form instead of a browser window, Facebook 4 Mac allows you to interact with Facebook without worrying about browsers.
We used Facebook 4 Mac for a week instead of a Web browser and found that it worked as expected. While the publisher says Facebook 4 Mac won't crash even when a browser does, in truth we've not had our browser crash when using Facebook. Still, there may be some who prefer the Facebook 4 Mac interface over a browser since you can customize the window size and have these settings remembered at each startup. We had no problems with Facebook 4 Mac, but again, we're not sure why most users will prefer it over a browser.
Access facebook without a web browser with this mac app made just for facebook. Quickly access your friends, your messages and chat. Also includes Google custom search for facebook and Face Books by Amazon. Facebook power users will find this app very useful since it remembers your window size and location and it wont crash even if your browser does.

"It WILL crash."
Version: Facebook 4 Mac 3.0
Fine if you don't plan on doing anything but wall post stuff.
Crashed almost every single time that I tried to do anything other than stick to my wall.
I DO NOT see the need for this.
