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

HOW IT WORKS AFTER 17 March 2021? Facebook broke classic design again. We try to load classic design, but currently it is working for NOTIFICATIONS tabs of your pages. If the page is not loaded in classic design - we load it with classic theme and (sometimes) no ads. Install the extension - go to facebook and run it to select "classic design".

We REMOVE Sponsored div (currently only for English version of website).

We add possibility to ZOOM the page, so you can set a bigger zoom only for facebook websites.

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.

This hasn't worked for over a year. Why is it still available here, and why such high ratings?
