A big old nerd

I wanted a small, thin, light application that wrapped the Facebook Messenger service so that I could have Messenger open in an app rather than a browser tab. Caprine does exactly that. It also runs super light (~50Mb of RAM) *and* it has built in privacy features that Facebook does not offer. This is exactly what I was after. Kudos to the App dev for this one.

Pros:

This is exactly what I was looking for. An app wrapper for Messenger so I don't need to use a browser.

Cons:

None. It is literally 1000% what I was looking for.
