Browser Extension Msn4FB Brings Features From Windows Messenger, Skype To Facebook Chat

The developer behind Timeline Remove and Restyle Timeline, Italy-based Secuna, is leaving timeline alone for the time being and taking aim at chat.

Browser extension Msn4FB brings popular features from Windows Messenger and Skype into Facebook chat, including:

  • The ability to replace Facebook’s standard smiley faces with animated emoticons like those offered by Skype.
  • These new custom emoticons can be seen by anyone — other users do not have to install the browser extension.
  • The ability to add large emoticons and animated GIF files.
  • Msn4FB can be customized with users’ shortcuts, as well as the fonts, sizes, and colors of their choice.
  • Users can send and receive nudges, much like Windows Messenger.
