Cross-platform Silverlight out-of-browser Facebook client finally launches
And boy was it worth the wait.
I won't bore you with a laborious review with lots of screenshots -- Think Different has pictures, if you want -- I'll just tell you that this thing works, and it works really well. It's black and swish and shiny and silver. The entire gamut of Facebook functionality has been brought over to the Silverlight client. Status updates, photo browsing, mail -- even a neat photo uploader tool.
Plus it has notifications, ala TweetDeck or Growl. You can just forget most of the apps I listed in last week's Five Facebook Desktop Apps feature -- this bad boy does it all.
Except chat. It doesn't frackin' do chat. Anyway, give it a go -- you'll need to install the new version developer version of Silverlight, but it's worth it, I promise. Microsoft Silverlight > Adobe Air?!
