In case you’re a Facebook fan but hate its recent redesign, there’s the expectation. You can no longer revert back to “Old Facebook” simply by clicking a catch in your settings menu, but you can install a Chrome expansion that mysteriously changes the site, restoring the look and feel you recently appreciated.
To get started, go visit the appropriately named Old Layout and install the extension into your browser. And, yes, the same person who made this extension made the ever-useful Social Fixer extension that helps you curate your News Feed to drown out the content you don’t want to see. Matt Kruse, you are on a roll.
When you’ve introduced the augmentation, Facebook ought to naturally return to its exemplary appearance whenever you fire up the site. There’s nothing you need to design to get this flawless think back:
Concerning how it functions, I was astonished to find that the “hack” is in reality pretty straightforward. No, the expansion isn’t utilizing a lot of HTML and CSS wizardry to make a huge difference Facebook refreshed back to a more established look and feel. In fact, as Kruse composes:
In this way, in case you’re seeing any bizarre messages about refreshing your program while you peruse through your companions’ isolate exhausted lives, disregard them. Your program is fine; you’re simply making Facebook believe you’re utilizing something you aren’t.
There’s no assurance this little stunt will work always, so appreciate Old Facebook while you can. What’s more, indeed, you can consolidate this expansion with Social Fixer to keep the more seasoned look and clergyman a feed liberated from points you scorn. That incorporates the entirety of Facebook’s irritating supported substance, which gobbles up significant land on the site and diminishes your capacity to appreciate of seeing what your companions are doing.
On the off chance that this is very a lot, however, I guess you could likewise utilize the convenient Social Book Post Manager expansion to gradually erase your substance on Facebook before erasing Facebook itself. That appears to be somewhat of an eruption to Facebook’s new format—which even I don’t adore—yet it’s essential to think about the entirety of your alternatives, I assume.
