Most of you guys will be asking What is NewGenBook:Clique, Basically it's a better alternative than using the original facebook app & website! we've redesigned the original FB site from the ground up making it a unique and better experience but not taking away the enjoyment of surfing Facebook.

We already have several desktop apps for all major browsers - It is currently available for Google Chrome/, Firefox, Opera and Safari! & we are slowly expanding to other platforms such as iPhone, windows & Android.

Enjoy! & don't forget to like our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/newgenbook

to stay up to date & see more screenshots on the iphone and mac app development watch this thread and watch the dribbble page: Dribbble - Show and tell for designers or follow me on twitter: @jeayese

"Should" have been?

I can't agree - it wastes a lot of left-hand space. Facebook has a LOT of info to display.

Looks really good, although out of personal preference, I prefer block colours over say, gradients.

Yes but that "info" can be access easily from rolling over the left area, watch the video to see what I mean.

Cheers, We're going to make the colours customizable, solid or gradients you guys can pick ^_^

I did. Currently I don't need to roll-over anything though - so I see it as a negative step...
