MU> Requirements is 10.12. For anyone with older OS, I recommend Caprine.

Caprine was becoming annoying. Dark mode quit working and a few other minor glitches. Messenger does all that I'm looking for. Just lacks menu bar option.

Just the same as the mobile app, a little laggy on my Air 2017

No need to use proprietary facebook software in 2020. Use Open Source signal, xmpp (beagle, monal) or rocket chat. There are many open alternatives.
