The best thing about this app is I can browse through my Facebook feed and notifications without having to switch to any other application or by opening a new window and I can see my Facebbok feed while browsing and after checking the updates I can go back to my browsing just by an sing click, but if you click on the mobile view then it automatically opens a new window in the browser, that’s a bit disappointing but overall it’s a great update.
