Facebook kills desktop messenger client for Windows

For any of you who held hope their acquisition of Whatsapp would lead to further cross platform development, including a desktop client, this is terrible news. If Facebook is no longer interested in supporting desktop applications, you can bet the same philosophy will hold true for Whatsapp.

I, for one, am incredibly disappointed about this change as I use it daily on laptop and desktop. I have a copious amount of tabs open and it is incredibly inconvenient to go searching through 100+ tabs to find the facebook tab. This is a serious regression.

They have given no reasoning behind this decision.
