WhatsApp on the Linux Desktop

Some genius created a cross-platform “client” for WhatsApp on the desktop. It’s not actually a stand alone client, since WhatsApp doesn’t provide an open API. Rather, it’s a wrapper for WhatsApp Web, the company’s own web client. I had some problems getting it to work, though. There seems to be a user agent related problem. […]

Quitting Facebook…
