Enable Facebook video calling in Lion


Facebook’s new video calling feature is specifically designed for each browser and OS combination out there.  Unfortunately, Facebook didn’t account for those people using Lion (You’ve got a week Facebook).

The fix is easy however: Just change your Browser user agent to something a little more traditional and you are video chatting.

For instance, in Safari, hit up Safari 5.1-Mac and you are golden.

Hit up here for other browsers.
