How can I enable the new Facebook chat?

As many bad reviews as the new Facebook chat has gotten, I would rather have my chat in the sidebar. Trouble is, I don’t get the option to put it there. I do get video chat and the new chatbox design, but no sidebar.

I’m running my 13″ MBP at maximum resolution (1280×800) using the latest Chrome beta (13.0.782.41) with the Chrome window maximized, but it still doesn’t show up. My dad uses the same model MBP, but a different physical machine with his Chrome window in a narrower configuration, but gets the sidebar. What gives?

PS. The contact form doesn’t accept .us domains in the email field…
