The Facebook Messenger client for Windows has stopped working from yesterday onwards and it seems increasingly clear that the future of the social network is focusing on the mobile market. If you’re already missing this now-defunct service, Tawea is an extension that integrates Facebook chat with your browser and keeps it open even when you don’t have the site open in your tabs.
The extension is available for Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Safari. After installing and activating it you can talk with your Facebook friends without having to log into the site; in fact, you don’t even have to go to the site. A tab will be integrated into your browser in the lower right corner of the screen and you can drop it down whenever you want.
You can also share content with your contacts directly by dragging the content down to the chat window. If you want to send an image to someone you just have to drag it down to the conversation in question, meaning it won’t be necessary to copy and paste the URL.
Its installation and setup is very simple. You just have to login to Facebook and give the app permission to access your profile information, which in this case will be your public content, friends list, and messages.
Something really great about Tawea is that it pays a lot of attention to security, meaning it won’t run on suspicious websites or incognito windows. Tawea only works on secure webpages (HTTPS). In addition, it can also be integrated into webpages based on an HTML script or using plugins for various CMS like WordPress or Joomla. With Tawea you will be able to definitively say goodbye to Facebook Messenger with a smile.
