Well, guys, I've been able to prevent Facebook from telling people that I've read their messages on Chrome! :p

Yes, it works for firefox too and there's one for google and twitter too, works very well.
(Only downside to the google one is it blocks ALL google sites, including those that just host files and javascript includes, so I have to disable it for a number of sites)
