    Does anyone have it working in Lion? Does it work on Snow Leopard?

    It hasn't come up on my FaceBook yet... I'm running Snow Leopard and will post back here once I've tried it out :)

    Just a thought, why would Facebook support a browser and OS that isn't out?

    Because the OS will be out in few days (more or less)

    That's a nice thought but they can hardly support what's currently out to begin with. Their coders are almost as bad as Adobe's.

    Enable the develop menu in Safari and change the user agent to Safari 5.1 Mac, and that will enable video calling.

    ;)

    This is for all running Lion.

    Its not really a problem, I think Safari in Lion is just not supported yet. I am thinking that should change soon when Lion is released.

    Has anyone been able to get the group chats feature yet?

    Is it being rolled out gradually over the next few weeks or can you get immediate access to it like the Video Calling?

    Google + is going to rock Facebook. It will take some time but within a year I see G+ being marketed as just as big of a target as FaceBook is.
