Facebook brings Messenger to a standalone site for web browsers
Messenger, Facebook's messaging platform, is now available as a standalone service on the web. In the past users had to use Facebook's website to message their friends and family, but starting today they can do so without all the extra distractions. Facebook recently held a conference in which they detailed various ways they planned to further tap Messenger as a platform of its own.
The new web address for the Messenger is pretty simple to remember, Messenger.com. When users access this page they will log in with their Facebook credentials and then have access to a list of conversations. Breaking it out this way allows you to message and stay in touch with the people you need, without having distractions of event notifications and various timeline posts.
Facebook does not have any plans at the current time to remove the messaging capabilities from the main site as they did on mobile. With the focus that Facebook has been putting on Messenger as a platform, the move of this to its own domain is not a huge surprise.

And my iOS friends have a hard time stifling their laughs.
That being said, im not saying that facebook couldnt do something about it. After all, there are games that got a better low memory support, than this app. Plus it is missing features.
Particularly when conversing with my GF. She use to type a long story about her lunch, dinner and day happenings.. Also my Gf takes a lot of time to think and carefully reply, even if I ping her just a Hi. :( :( wait... Why I'm blabbering this here... OMG :(
Also seems that calling works from website while my phone app doesn't have it.
