Anytime Facebook changes, most people clamor and scream about how it’s time to leave the social media site once and for all. But now a Google Chrome extension might actually bring the change you want to see on Facebook.
The new flat-design extension attempts to refocus Facebook on content you care about, without other features like “Recent posts” and “Trending.” Rof Tentik, a developer and UI designer, chose a flat design because it includes these main features: a page becomes easier to load, and the design can easily work on a variety of screens without looking too playful.
Also in this version of Facebook, the colors are bolder, the font is entirely Trebuchet, you see more white space, and it includes a sticky left-side menu showing everything about you, like photos, notifications, and groups.
You can also toggle on and off the extension at the top-left corner, so you’re not always stuck with this design if you change your mind. Try it out – you might end up liking Facebook a lot more this way.
