Messenger for Desktop – a simple & beautiful desktop client for Facebook Messenger. Chat without distractions on OS X, Windows and Linux. Not affiliated with Facebook. Messenger for Desktop is a wrapper for the official client messenger.com. By “wrapper”, I mean that it works like a regular browser which can only navigate to the messenger.com web app. Thus, MFD doesn’t touch your messages, account or personal data.

Features:
– Themes & Mini Mode
– Native Notifications (with reply on OS X)
– Spell Checker & Auto Correct
– Support for Facebook for Work
– Keyboard Shortcuts
– Launch on OS startup
– Automatic Updates

The project developer is Alexandru Rosianu.
