How to activate Facebook video calling

If you follow this link, click on "Get started", download and install a small plugin for your browser, the Facebook Video Calling service we wrote before (a video chat based on Skype) will be activated. Now you'll see a picture of a camera near the contact name while chatting. Click it and you'll be able to videochat with them!
The system won't work with all browsers yet, though: officially only Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, MS Internet Explorer and Apple Safari are supported. Yet, my latest-version Safari was not recognized. Neither was Opera.
The chat window has changed a bit too: the input field has gone down to the level of inactive conversations, there are other, more cosmetic changes too.
