Facebook For Android Beta 3.5 Finally Starts Opening (Some) Facebook.com Links In The App Instead Of The Browser

Remember the latest Facebook beta update v3.5? The one that brought photo saving and got rid of the legacy menu button, among other things. Looks like there's another change we didn't spot - one that's roughly 3 years overdue.
