"1/2 star only because I could not give it no star"
Version: Facebook @Desktop 3.01
There are none
This is nothing but an Internet Explorer add on
This is nothing but an Internet Explorer add on. Check your Facebook logins and you will find that Facebook thinks it is Internet Explorer. You would be better off running a real browser like Firefox or Chrome or Opera and have more options to choose from than to use a piece of I.E.
"This is a Cool little program"
Version: Facebook @Desktop 3.1
it runs without hogging resources
it works great for monitoring Facebook only
The notification are a little on the timid side, if you are not watching that corner of the screen you will miss them
The Browser needs to be re size able. It is to full screen and in your face
Over all it is a cool little program. I would recommend it. Even if it was not the only face book only program that I could find that works.
It does what it says it will do
