Current offers THE BEST way to message and browse on Facebook with your Mac! With Current, you can Facebook message friends in their own chat windows and quickly access your inbox, notifications, and online friends right from the menu bar.

Current isn’t just a messaging app. It’s a complete replacement for using Facebook in the browser, and it’s built to give you the best possible experience on the Mac. Current allows you to use only the parts of Facebook that you want and doesn’t include any annoying cross-promotional ads.

Major features:

• Group chats, stickers, and everything else you'd expect with Facebook Messenger are all supported on Current.

• Photos open in their own windows where you can swipe through them to browse the album, as well as comment, like, share, tag, and go full screen.

• Videos can be popped out of the page, so you can continue watching while browsing or using other apps.

• Notifications are customizable in the Preferences so you can prevent unwanted distractions.

• When navigating Facebook, you can swipe back to exactly where you were in the feed at any time, so you never lose your place.

Accessibility Comments

This app works quite well. So far I can only get it to show as a full facebook layout. I haven't been able to set it to show the mobile version.


The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Although I love the interface, I don't like the fact that the interface is web based. Now more then ever is it harder to use. Iv'e gone back to safari and setting the web agent to firefox for windows. The facebook mobile site is going down hill in my opinion and it will not change for a while
