Facebook Messenger Battle Going On Two Years

That’s when I found a way to force the phone web browser to open Facebook as the desktop page rather than mobile. This works to this day.

Three years, three years.

When will it end? Will I even care about Facebook by then? It’s hard to say. Facebook desktop in a mobile browser is annoying as crap, but this is personal. I’m not moving until they force my hand.

They probably will.
