I was just trying to stay in touch with Facebook without keep the Facebook tab always open.

Now I can check any notification with this Google Chrome extension

And I have to open the tab only when something arrive.

The next step is to keep the chat online without the tab opened. I tried find some extension but none I found can do it. Any suggestions?

You could use the Rockmelt browser - which is based on Chrome, and included a standalone Facebook chat client on the 'edges' of the browser screen. It also allows you to see notifications, updates etc without having to visit the Facebook website.

If you are on Mac, you can use Adium. Or you could use this Chrome extension.

I would suggest using trillian. Its a free program that allows you to link to your instant messaging/social network sites. I just started using it and I find it to be pretty useful.
