Facebook has surpassed all the social networking sites and has become one of the most popular social networking tool. Facebook keeps on adding new features but still it is lacking with a very handy feature i.e to save chat history. You all must be knowing that Facebook has an in-built chat client using which you can chat with all your online Facebook buddies, but unfortunately there is no option available to save the chat history as available on other chat client like of Gmail where you have special chat folder for chat history.

So the best solution for saving the chat history in Facebook is by using a simple tool named Facebook Chat History Manager. This tool is basically an extension for Firefox which allows you to keep the Facebook chat history on your computer for future references, so that next time whenever you chat with you buddies you can recall the previous chat session.

Then go to tools on Firefox and there you will see a new option i.e Facebook chat history manager.
