FaceTab is a desktop Facebook app that runs on your Macs menu bar. The app allows you to have access to Facebook very quickly, since the app constantly runs on your Mac's system menu bar. FaceTab uses the mobile version of Facebook. You can access the app by clicking on its menu bar icon, which will display a large window, where your Facebook feeds will be shown. You can resize this window by dragging and dropping, but after a certain size, most of the FaceTab window will "leave" your screen, so the max size is somewhat limited. To be more specific about this issue, when you drag the window to resize it, the app is enlarged in both directions. And you can't move the window, you can only resize it. That is a small issue though. The app is fully usable in its default size.
From the FaceTab window, you can see what your friends are posting (photos, status updates, etc), you can access your profile, your friends' and your inbox. Since FaceTab seems to use the mobile version of Facebook, you can expect some limitations.
I like that you can launch FaceTab by using a hotkey and that it allows for quick access to status updates and friends' posts. The app is free and you have to get it from the App Store. There is a "pro" version with some neat(er) features, but the same limitations.
- It provides quick access to Facebook
- It uses the mobile version, thus it is limited
- No chat
