    It's a desktop app, you'll have to download it from that page after installing Silverlight 4. ;)

    No wonder I have been waiting for ages for an Adobe AIR Facebook client, MS owns 1.6% stake at Facebook.

    Strange when I downloaded the dmg using safari I got a silverlight.dmg. It installed Silverlight 3.0. When I used Firefox it downloaded silverlight_developer.dmg. I installed that and now the client is loading in Safari.

    Oh, if you can't install the Facebook app, try restarting your browser, it's like Flash, you gotta reopen your browser.

    Go to the link, then it will download (without the Download box) right at the page, it will ask for your password to install and done.

    Well, you have to tell all your contacts to allow use of the app. Some pics can't be opened.
