Chatting Up A Storm, With Chit Chat For Facebook Major Update


Last year, we published a story about Chit Chat for Facebook, before Facebook released their own official messenger.

The official Facebook messenger didn't stop innovation on Chit Chat, and the developers recently completed a significant update to their application bringing it up to v1.5.

The Chit Chat Messenger keeps a few steps ahead of the official messenger, with benefits the official Facebook product doesn't provide. For example, Chit Chat aggregates status updates, and provides proxy compatibility, and short cut keys.

The Chit Chat team says the competition helps them to continue to innovate - many cool things that they introduced in the past found their way into Facebook's official client.

The main changes are a completely new interface design, enhanced connectivity and dynamic chat connection technology.

Chit Chat: First Fully Fledged Messenger Client For Facebook

The company says the official Facebook Messenger was launched, in part, due to the apparent success of unofficial Messenger applications like Chit Chat.

After Facebook launched their own official messenger, Chit Chat didn't give up, and now thousands of people download and use Chit Chat for the first time each day.

In this significant update, Chit Chat's connectivity core was rebuilt to make connectivity more robust and easier to update anytime Facebook makes changes.

A new component was created to allow automatic updates to the connectivity component in the event Facebook makes changes to Facebook chat.

The interface has been professionally designed and recreated, so it looks much more attractive, and the emoticons have been updated and improved. Buddy images have been integrated within the Facebook Messenger, with an option to use regular icons within the client if desired.

User feedback on a previous release of Chit Chat was that many popup windows were created at once, when friends logged in or out of Facebook chat. To fix that problem, it has been integrated within one window, that can be turned off in settings.

Chit Chat is free, is low on memory and CPU usage, and unlike Facebook Messenger, does not require any "runtimes" like Microsoft's .Net Framework.

If you like to chat on facebook, then Chit Chat is worth a look. You can visit the Chit Chat website to read more or you can download the application here.
