Gabtastik is WebKit based Site Specific Browser (SSB) for Web chat services such as Facebook Chat, Google Talk and meebo. This allows users to keep Web chat sessions running on the desktop outside of their regular Web browser, using minimal screen real estate and system memory.
Decent first effort, but more features and options have got to be added to make it useful. My main complaint is that there is no real notification of when a message is received. I don't want to have to check the app every 10 min to see if a message has arrived. It's got the bounce the dock icon or something. You also need to be able to change to font size. The contact list (at least for meebo) doesn't scroll so if you have alot of contacts they're just "off the page" because the typeface is so big. Like the idea, but the implementation has got to be upgraded before I can use it.
Well it's perfect for people like me who *only* use FB Chat. I don't require Audium with its many features etc..
If you have mates on other networks then I can understand the need for an app like Audium.
Simple, clean, pretty, stable, free.
Really appreciate this app, as I hate chatting directly via FB!
Had drop-out issues for a while, but I think it was the fault of FB, as their stuff needs tweaking..
Keep it comin' mate.
I was looking for something exactly like this today, and I was glad to see that someone had made a client like this for Facebook Chat. It works perfectly!
I'm really impressed with all the cool interface effects too.
I like this. It's simple, small, and does what it claims. My only question would be: Why this, and not Adium? Essentially, they offer the same thing, with the exception of this keeping you on facebook too. So where/how does the developer see this being used in comparison to Adium?
Is it also possible to have Facebook Notifications displaying here too, or is that not possible?
