Works with Firefox 28, Google Chrome 33 & Opera 12

This userscript replaces the new Facebook Chat Sidebar with one like the original!
It hooks Facebooks internal functions to display the old chat.
By the way the new Feed ticker is integrated in the right bar and isn't depending on the chat anymore.
It really works, even with the Timeline update ;) Please share this userscript or write a review!
