Facebook Chat now using Jabber (XMPP)

Facebook is now using the Jabber (XMPP) open messaging protocol for it's chat services. This is great news since desktop clients have had to use workarounds to get Facebook chat working.

Most clients will probably roll out support in an update, but until then there are instructions on how to set it up as a regular Jabber account on the Facebook chat page.
