Since the launch of Google+, Facebook has been busy making changes to its site and releasing new exciting features like group and video chat. Recently Facebook launched an update for Facebook chat- A new chat sidebar. Facebook's New chat sidebar shows a list of friends you interact the most (Kewl!). However the list of friends is algorithmically chosen and you cannot edit it. It even shows friends which are currently offline and it displays the list in alphabetical order which makes it pretty annoying.
Many Facebook have expressed their anger on this page and have been asking How to revert back to old facebook chat. In this post I’ll be sharing a trick which will enable you to get your old Facebook chat back.
There are three ways you can do this :

Method 1: Using Google Chrome
