Don't like the new Facebook design?
Facebook doesn't allow you to use old version? You want to use old layout of Facebook?

it is not so easy now. We always working to find new solutions. At the moment:
- User who manage a Page or Group - can use our extension to switch to classic design.
- Old browser - now you can choose which browser to simulate and we will share the string for it on our site.
- When old browser doesn't work: use "no ads" option, if we will be in many, it may help us to get classic back at least for some time, meanwhile they are improving the new design!
Please share it with your friends!

How script works: it doesn't read or use any information (of course there is no ads or popup as well), it just changes your browser version that is sent to facebook, so Facebook shows you the classic design for old browsers. OR it uses a default facebook API to switch back to classic design!

Risk impact

Old layout and theme requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Old layout and theme if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Old layout and theme is very likely to contain malware and should not be trusted. Avoid installing.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
