    FYI...

    Facebook has opened up their chat protocol using the Jabber/XMPP protocol. If you have any iPhone apps that support Jabber such as Beejive, you can now have full Facebook chat on your phone or Mac/PC using a client instead of a web browser.

    http://www.facebook.com/sitetour/chat.php for instructions.

    Usually I'd agree, but using it via the Jabber client it's very reliable.

    I noticed that the AIM app added Facebook chat to itself yesterday as well.

    It would only be reliable if EVERYONE used it via a Jabber client, and not the Facebook page.
