I’ve noticed that, unfortunately, Frost is becoming less and less functional. More pages give error, and the chat isn’t working properly either. It seems like it’s finally puttering out from inactive maintenance as FB continues to grow and change.

Are there and active forks of it that work? Are there any good alternatives to Frost?

Note: I’d prefer not to use FB at all, but I have to in order to stay in contact with family and others who cling to it. I’m sure you understand.

    It is a pretty big problem. There are front-ends for almost any social network or streamin sites like YT, except for FB, because Facebook includes codes that hinder and avoid eventual front-ends, forcing the user to visit FB, yes or yes, in order to track and profile him. The only way to avoid it is to use all kinds of blockers, VPNs or the like. I personally avoid visiting it as much as possible, but it is true that sometimes it is impossible to avoid it. Therefore, apart from the usual blockers, I use Portmaster in the system. It is also recommended to use Site Bleacher in the browser.
